Excursions with buggy: The meditation path

Sesto/Sexten, Sexten/Sesto, Dolomites Region 3 Zinnen
from center of

Along the way, 14 stations with various texts from the Bible and matching relief carvings invite you to pause for a moment. Both the Lordesstöckl on the way to the forest chapel and the clear fountain at the 9th station of the contemplation trail are always popular with visitors and locals alike.
The history of the forest chapel is interesting: the church, which is almost entirely made of wood, was built around 1917, as the parish church in Sesto was badly damaged during the First World War. For 14 days, the farmers and the priest at the time worked on the church from early in the morning until nightfall. The wood for this came from a hay barn that had been crushed by the snow. In 1917 and 1918, every church service was celebrated there and, especially during the fascist era, the forest chapel served as a hiding place to hold masses in German. Today, the chapel is also known as the Peace Chapel and was restored in 1974. In 1988, at the suggestion of the then parish priest Markus Küer and in collaboration with the Sesto woodcarver Georg Lanzinger, a path of reflection was laid out to the chapel. Near the chapel there are cup stones, which are among the oldest traces of settlement in Sesto and are also the last of the biblical stations along the path of reflection.
