St. Coloman Chapel and Castles

Schwangau, Germany

The famous baroque church standing in a field in front of the village has been the destination of great pilgrimages since the 15th century.
According to the legend, Coloman would have been resting, preaching and even pasturing cattle in Schwanengau during a pilgrimage trip he made from Ireland, his country, to Jerusalem.
Up to present days he has always been invoked by catholic believers when someone gets ill among people or animals as well, or in case of overflowings and storms.

Stunning image, love the bell tower and the castle in the mountains. Looks like Neuschwanstein castle to me, is it? V.

Good work Tom.
