The legend of the three Holy Wells of Trafoi
In the 13th century, at this place, shepherd Moritz saw three runlets breaking out of the rock. Every runlet was carrying a cross. Two of the crosses he could fish out from water, the third one swept away. Both of the crosses were hung up in the churches of Stilfs and St. Johann in the Münster valley.
In the 15th century, the idyllic place almost here on the sources of the river, was declared a place of pilgrimage to the Virgin Mary and a chapel was built. The sources were said to have healing qualities. The place of pilgrimage has always been a point of interest for pilgrims seeking for peace and quiet, hikers and visitors from far and near. The miraculous image of the Mother of God spends the summer at the place of pilgrimage and the snowy winter at the parish church in Trafoi.
Next to the little pilgrimage chapel, where according to the legend a couple of miracles had happened, there is a little chapel and a well house. There you can read about the legend of the tree Holy Wells of Trafoi.
