Our Lady Chapel

As Jesus' mother, Mary is revered above all other saints. Prayers, songs, churches, altars, religious orders, pilgrimages and festivals have been devoted to her. In the month of May, the rosary prayer is said in her honour, complete with flowers and candles

Since there is no room for an altar to Mary in the Attic Church, the area behind the main altar has been set up as a chapel to Our Lady. Immediately alongside the altar, there is a multi-coloured limewood statue of Maria (circa 1690) thought to originate from the Attic Church. She carries Jesus under her arm and is standing on the crescent moon. She has a snake caught under her feet, a symbol of all evil.
