St Barbara’s Church information
The 17th-century St Barbara’s Church is 1km south of the monastery. Its location is believed to have been determined by the spring that emerged here when the Black Madonna needed to be washed after it was vandalised (it’s still bubbling away behind the church). This legend is depicted on the vault of the chapel.
