With a guide, climb Apparition Hill where the young visionaries first encountered Our Lady. As you climb, you can see the inspired beauty of the bronze plaques depicting each mystery of the rosary and pray before the cross that commemorates the spot where Our Lady appeared. Visit Blue Cross

Apparition Hill (Mount Podbrdo)
This mountainous hill is where the visionaries first encountered Our Lady 25 June 1981. Also, at the base of this hill a Wooden Cross “Marija, walking down the hill, mysteriously was physically pushed to the side and shown by Our Lady a cross, pointing to it saying, ‘Peace, peace, peace.’ It is interesting to note that Our Lady said these words the third day, June 26, 1981, of the apparitions. Is it not strange that the violence of the Cross, blood, torn flesh, a terrible atrocity is shown by Our Lady to represent peace? This important lesson teaches many things. When we struggle and are in the midst of turmoil, it is then that we turn to prayer the most, seeking peace. More

When climbing, your group is invited to recite the Rosary, pausing five times for each decade of the Rosary. At the top of the hill, you will witness the exact location of the first alleged apparition of Our Lady to the visionaries and enjoy private time in prayer. It was from Apparition Hill where Our Lady first began inviting the world, through the visionaries and the village of Medjugorje, to respond to Her call. There have been literally thousands of apparitions of Our Lady to the visionaries’ quarter to 6 pm, where ever they are —apparitions that continue even to this day.

The Blue Cross is located at the left side of the base of Apparition Mountain. It is on this site that Our Lady appeared to the visionaries when they were hiding from the Communist police in the beginning days of the apparitions. A blue cross was erected to mark the spot of the apparitions, which led to the naming of the site, “Blue Cross”, where visionary Mirjana has Apparition every 2nd of the month at 9 am

A day trip to the monastery and church in Tihaljina is also a popular pleasure trip. The parish priest Fr.Jozo Zovko 1985-1991 renewed the parish house and the church, and in its place of the old parish house is a new home for nuns, the grounds of the church have also attractively been reclaimed.

12:00 Siroki Brijeg, Franciscan Monastery with the Church dedicated to the Blessed Mother’s Assumption in Heaven (34 Franciscan priests were killed on 7 February, 1945)
The Monastery was built in the late Roman style. The Monastery also hosts gallery with over 1.500 art works. The Thirty Franciscan Martyrs of Široki Brijeg visited by thousands of pilgrims. Back in Medjugorje around 17.00 to join daily evening prayer program at St. James church
One angry soldier took the Crucifix and threw it on the floor. He said, “you can now choose either life or death.” Each of the Franciscans knelt down, embraced the Crucifix and said, “You are my God and my All.” The thirty Franciscans were taken out and slaughtered and their bodies burned in a nearby cave where their remains lay for many years. Today they are buried inside the Franciscan church. In our Gospel today Jesus said, “if anyone declares himself for me in the presence of men, I will declare myself for him in the presence of my Father in heaven.” The thirty Franciscan martyrs of Široki Brijeg are a powerful example of declaring oneself in the presence of others for Jesus. They lived something else Jesus also said in the Gospel, ‘Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; fear him rather who can destroy both body and soul in hell.’

The oldest script ever found in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Humacka ploca, is exhibited here. This stone-carved slate written in Glagolitic is said to date back to the 10th century.

Cross Mountain (Krizevac)
“Krizevac” means “Mount of the Cross.” It is the highest mountain in the area. In 1933, the parish of St. James erected a large concrete cross to commemorate the 1900th Anniversary of Jesus’ passion and death on the Cross. Cross Mountain is central to one’s pilgrimage to Medjugorje. It is a penitential climb that lead pilgrims to reflect upon their relationship with God and what they need to change in their lives to draw closer to Him. Often deep healing, cleansing and peace is experienced at the summit of the mountain, at the foot of the cross, after pilgrims arrive at the top. Our Lady has made it clear in Her messages that it is Her desire to see pilgrims climbing both Cross Mountain and Apparition Mountain.
