THE MORESNET CALVARY

THE MORESNET CALVARY
© Office du Tourisme de la Commune de Plombières.

The Calvary of Moresnet-Chapelle is a unique realisation in Europe and was inaugurated in 1902. Innumerable processions, torchlight corteges and other religious events have taken place in this idyllic setting since. 14 caves in stones recovered from lava stones contain the high relief in French stone. Stained-glass windows, mosaics, marble and exceptional structures in wrought iron give a certain characteristic to each station.
68,000 ornamental plants, including 90 exotic species, form a marvellous verdant backdrop. Many horticultural schools visit the park, which is rich in colours and botanical discoveries, particularly when the rhododendrons are in bloom. Pilgrims or single visitors will find an oasis of verdure and tranquillity there.


Open all year round, from sunrise to sunset.
Access: Liege-Aachen road to Moresnet.
Free admission.
