|In Turcia, am fost si intr-o excursie la casa Fecioarei Maria.||One of the trips we took in Turkey was at the House of the Virgin Mary.|
|A meritat sa vizitam acest loc incredibil de frumos, dar si cu o poveste extraordinara.||It was well worth the visit especially because of the beautiful place but also the story.|
|Casa a fost descoperita in secolul al 19-lea. Viziunile unei calugarite din Germania, Anne Catherine Emmerich, l-au condus pe un preot francez fix in acest loc.
Se spune ca Fecioara Maria a fost adusa in acest loc de Sfantul Ioan.
|The house was discovered in the 19-th century by following the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich, a nun from Germany.
The belief is that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was taken to this stone house by Saint John.
|Aici se gaseste capela (casa, dar si mormantul Fecioarei Maria). Am asteptat cateva minute la coada ca sa intram.||At the site there is a Chapel (the house combined with her grave). We stayed a few minutes in a line to get in.|
|Pozele sunt interzise in interiorul capelei.||Pictures were forbidden inside, I took a shot from a panel.|
|Tot aici gasiti o gradina frumoasa, cu multe flori si pisici prietenoase.||There is also a garden, with friendly cats, and flowers.|
|Puteti sa scrieti o dorinta si sa o prindeti pe acest perete. Se spune ca dorinta se va indeplini.||A wall where people write a wish on a piece of paper and tie it there to come true.|
|In acest loc exista si un izvor, se spune ca apa are proprietati miraculoase.
Acum cativa ani un incediu a afectat locul. Focul a distrus padurea, dar nu si casa Fecioarei Maria.
In aceeasi excursie am poposit la o fabrica de ceramica. Am vazut acolo cateva obiecte fabricate manual. Ca amintire am cumparat un magnet cu soarele si luna, extrem de frumos realizat.
|And there is also a stream called the “Water of Mary”. It is said that the water has healing properties.
The interesting story is that a few years ago, there was a fire there that has destroyed the forest behind the house but nothing else.
Another stop point in the trip was a ceramics factory. We saw there some beautiful handmade pieces. I took a sun and moon fridge magnet as a memory.
