Lourdes Grotto

Fourteen Stations of the Cross lead from the church to the "Lourdes Grotto", a replica of the place in Lourdes (France) where in 1858 the Mother of God appeared to Bernadette Soubirous 18 times and where millions of pilgrims go to pray and be cured of their bodily suffering. This cave in the Entlebuch is a popular place for weddings, while those wishing to pray quietly find peace and relaxation here.

Leuk charnel house

A 20 m long wall of skulls gives the chapel in the middle of Leuk its name. These are not people who died in plagues or wars, who found their last resting places here, but the mortal remains of those for whom there was no room in the cemetery. The inscription: "What you are, we once were. What we are, you will become", is a memento mori, a reminder that you must die.
