Capella de La Mare de Déu

About

Inside this small chapel, you will see a statue of the Virgin Mary, protector of the sleepy village of Costitx.

The story of this little chapel takes us back to the year of 1229, when a group of choir boys found the statue of the Virgin Mary here. The local community saw the statue as a sign from above and immediately built a chapel to put the statue in. This chapel became the very first Christian chapel in this area.

Later on, the statue of the Virgin Mary was moved to the nearby church of Sant Peter, which was the parish of this area at that time. However, one late night many years later the statue disappeared from the church, and was found in the original temple in Costitx. The small congregation saw this as yet another sign from God, that Costitx was to be protected by the Virgin Mary.

The statue was later on stored in this small chapel for everyone to enjoy it.
