Maria Larch pilgrimage church

A little above the town of Terfens in Tyrol is the small and delicate pilgrimage church of Maria Larch with a fountain.

The special thing about this church is the well house with a spring whose water is said to have revitalizing powers. Even though the church is remote and rarely visited, there is always someone who fills a few (or many) bottles with the special water.

The church is isolated on the edge of the forest next to a meadow and is easy to reach by car. It's about 2 km on foot from Terfens. The origins of the church go back to the 17th century, when the farmer's wife Maria Bogner regularly prayed at a larch tree on the site of today's church. The water from the well house is supplied by St. Florian guards.
