The three Holy Wells of Trafoi

General description

Located at the foot of King Ortles, the Church of the Three Holy Wells in Trafoi tells a special story: In the 13th century, the shepherd Moritz saw three little streams break from the rocks in the spot where the chapel now stands. Each of the streams carried a cross. The shepherd was able to grab two of them, but the third was washed away. When the little church was erected in the 15th century, the site became a place of pilgrimage – and the healing powers of the holy wells are still spoken of today.
