Stapkata na Bogoroditsa (Virgin Mary's Step)

Village of Mineralni Bani in Haskovo, Bulgaria
The vestige from the Roman era is the landmark that has survived to this day and is known as Virgin Mary's Step"", which was cut into a natural rock. It is located 5 metres from the first mineral spring - in the centre of Mineralni Bani. It is 2 metres long, 1 metre deep and 0.75 m wide. According to historians this is an ancient sarcophagus, while the local population has given birth to a legend saying that this is the footstep left when the Mother of Jesus was running away from her Jewish pursuers.

INTERESTING FACTS

People believe that her ""miraculous footstep"" possesses healing power, brings good luck and can make wishes come true. This is why both Christians and Muslims worship this holy place and leave a thread or a piece of their garments here for health and happiness.
