23. Joseph Chapel

Built in 1884/85

Foundation of the citizens of the town.
Built on the former site of a  wayside
shrine. The chapel was restored
from 2008-2010.

 

The chapel, erected in a neo-gothic style, was donated by the citizens of the city in 1884/85. Prior to this, a wayside shrine was found there. The decision to dedicate a chapel to Joseph was taken in the time during which the veneration of the saint was once again becoming more popular. In 1870, Pope Pius IX declared Joseph the patron saint of the church.
