Apparition Hill


The place of the first apparitions of Our Lady, several hundreds meters above the Bijakovici hamlet called Podbrdo, is today called Apparition Hill.

A step path leads from the houses to the very place of the apparitions, along which- in 1989 – bronze relief’s were placed representing the joyful and the sorrowful mysteries of the Rosary (the work of Prof. Carmelo Puzzolo).


On the way towards the place of the apparitions, a large wooden cross was erected, signaling the place where – Our Lady gave the call to peace for the first time.

At the very place of the apparitions, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the apparitions, a statue of the Queen of Peace was placed, sculpted according to the statue, which you can find in front of parish church (the work of Dino Felici). For the pilgrims, an encounter with Apparition Hill is encounter with Our Lady through personal prayer and prayer of the rosary.
