The Roman Catholic Chapel St. Ana


Cozmeni, Romania


The Roman-Catholic chapel raised in honor of St. Ana can be visited near St. Anna Lake. It was built in 1977, to replace a wooden chapel.

People come to pray at the wood chapel near the lake since the 12th century. In 1564, a stone chapel was erected, the area being so popular that during the 17th and 18th centuries about 30,000-40,000 pilgrims arrived, and stayed for several days. It is said that Saint Ana helps young people to find their soul mate. Another legend says, that women who cannot have children, although they want it dearly, will succeed after a pilgrimage to St. Ana's Lake.
