  • The Chapel of The Holy Oak dates form the 15th century (later decided it was June 24th of 1406). The legend is that on this spot herdsmen found a statue of Maria floating (against the stream) in the river Beerze. The put it in an oak on the river-bank, but the villagers took it with them to the church in the village. but the next morning it was back on the spot where they found it. Later a wooden chapel was built as people suffering from fever were cured by visiting the statue. It became a well known destination for pilgrimages. The current chapel was built in 1854. Today the chapel is visited by 250,000 annual visitors, especially in the Maria month May.
