In front a little sculpture of Bernadette Soubirous praying . Maria cave ( hand made ), Rijkevorsel, Belgium

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In many villages in Flanders, the Dutch speaking part of Belgium, you'll find such hand made Maria grotten ( Maria caves ), devoted to the Holy Mary. Devotion to her was enormous. Many women around 60-70 are named after her. If you don't know a woman's name of that age and you call her Maria, you might be right in many cases.
