Loretto Chapel

The Loretto Chapel in Clervaux is a 18th century baroque jewel that fascinates visitors with its ornate architecture.

The Loretto Chapel in Clervaux is a religious jewel nestled in the picturesque Luxembourg countryside. The chapel was built in the 18th century and has attracted pilgrims and visitors ever since.

Its history goes back deep into the past. The chapel was originally built as a place of devotion and pilgrimage to promote devotion to the Virgin Mary. Its name "Loretto" refers to the Italian place of pilgrimage Loreto, which stands for the tradition of the house of the Holy Family.

The architecture of the Loretto Chapel is a remarkable example of the Baroque style. Its façade presents ornate details and decorations that reflect the master craftsmanship of the time. Inside, visitors will find a rich array of religious artworks, paintings and sculptures that emphasise the spiritual significance of the place.

The chapel is set in the midst of a tranquil environment that invites contemplation and inner reflection.

The Loretto Chapel is not only an architectural masterpiece, but also a place of spiritual connection and cultural heritage.

It is possible to book guided tours of the Loretto Chapel.
