In the wall of granite cubes you will find a small metal one pipe, from which the spring of the Lysolaj stream flows. When you go there, you might be surprised to find that it is busy in the morning, afternoon and sometimes even in the evening. A place that tempts miracles a beautiful baroque chapel dominates with the image of the Virgin Mary of the Seven Sorrows. What makes this hidden Prague place so unique?
In the lower part of the Housle valley, located in the Prague district Lysolaj you will find the baroque chapel you are looking for cared for by Dominican sisters. The beautiful building, which hides under the maple trees, was built in 1863. It has been modified often since then, and today it is possible to sit comfortably on one of the benches.
One can thus meditate in peace and listen to the magic of the place, which offers one of the main “attractions” here in the form of the Miraculous Well. In this case this is not a made-up rumor or grandmother’s stories. Miraculous well the name is justified, because the local water quality has been monitored for a long time and is renowned.
A long tradition
Of course, everything is based on tradition – people believe in the healing effects of water, especially in connection with bad eyesight. Anyone who thinks this is a myth would be wrong. The local water is really of very high quality, which is proven by regular tests carried out twice a year by an accredited laboratory for water analysis.
The results are always published on the table, which is located right next to the Miracle Well. The quality of the water undoubtedly improved when it was introduced to Lysolaj sewerage and drinking water distribution. However, until 1922, water from the stream here was the main source for most local residents. The fact that the source of the Lysolaj stream is still famous for its high water quality is also evidenced by the huge interest of people from the surrounding area. They regularly come here with water canisters or plastic bottles to take this Prague miracle home.
