This is places you will see with your local guide
The Church of St. James is the symbol and the heart of the Parish of Medjugorje. This world-known, two-tower church, was under construction from 1934 to 1969. It is located in the center of the village and it is also the center of the liturgical life of the parish and its original size has never been changed. At the very entrance to the church grounds there is a beautiful Statue of Our Lady, the Queen of Peace. The statue presents Our Lady welcoming all Her children and desiring to take each one of them by the hand and take them to Her Heart, Her Son.
Candle park area - Light a candle
Here people light candles for their loved ones who have passed away, but also for the numerous intentions they bring to Medjugorje. They leave their burdens, hopes and prayers at the feet of the Crucified Jesus. The area is nicely decorated and convenient for silent prayer and meditations.
Via Domini (the Way of the Lord)
Is a pathway with 5 beautiful mosaics that represent the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary. After contemplating the public life of Jesus, you will come to the end of the path where the Statue of the Risen Savior is located. This bronze statue is a work of Slovenian artist, Andrej Ajdič, and the parish of Medjugorje received it as a gift for Easter 1998. The part of the statue which is on the ground represents the tomb of Jesus, and the other part represent the Resurrection. The area around the statue is beautifully decorated for silent prayer, including also the Way of the Cross for people who can't climb Cross Mountain.
Local cemetery Kovacica - Visit the tomb of Fr. Slavko
A local cemetery in Medjugorje is a place where you can find not only local people praying, bringing flowers and lighting candles, but also many pilgrims. The reason for this is that the late Fr Slavko Barbaric is buried here. Father Slavko left a big imprint in the hearts of all parishioners and pilgrims of Medjugorje. Many people pray for his intercession because Our Lady said in Her message of Nov 25, 2000 : ' I rejoice with you and I desire to tell you that your brother Slavko has been born into Heaven and intercedes for you…'
Blue Cross - Spend some time in reflections and meditations at the Blue Cross The Blue Cross is a special place at the base of Apparition Hill where Our Lady appeared to the children when they were hiding from the Communist police. It is here that Our Lady still appears to the visionary Mirjana at her monthly apparition (every 2nd of the month) and sometimes to the visionary Ivan when he has a meeting with his prayer group. Sometimes on those occasions all pilgrims are invited to be present at the apparition. The Blue Cross is an easy climb and a very special place for all those who can’t climb Apparition Hill but still want to be part of it.
Apparition Hill - Pray the Joyful Mysteries to the Statue of Our Lady commemorating the spot where she appeared. The Hill of Podbrdo is the place where the Medjugorje events started. It is on this hill that Our Lady first appeared to six children back in 1981. After that, millions of pilgrims, in a special way, have encountered Our Lady climbing this hill. Ever since the first days of the apparitions, the hill is known as Apparition Hill. Along the steep, rocky path, which leads from the houses further up the Hill, there are 15 bronze reliefs which represent the Joyful, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. Climbing the Hill you have an opportunity to meet with Our Lady in the most special way, in the place that she has chosen and through Her favorite prayer, the Rosary. As you come to the top of the hill you will see the Statue of Our Lady which was erected there on the 20th anniversary of the apparitions in order to mark the Apparition Site.
