Our Lady Of Benoite-Vaux

Country :

Year : 1875

The original statue of the Blessed Virgin at Benoite-Vaux (holy valley) in the diocese of Verdun, is said to have been found by foresters working in a wood.

The statue was destroyed in the French Revolution; its successor, also very old, is said to resemble it, and was crowned in 1875.  It is the center of a pilgrimage, especially in summer.  There is another shrine of the same name in the diocese of Lyons.
