Banneux Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 30 photos


Mariette Beco was eleven years old in January 1933 when the Virgin appeared for the first time to her.

She was the eldest child of a poor Catholic family of seven children, who lived in a simple working-class house, isolated at the edge of the forest in Banneux.

In the evening of January 15th 1933, the Virgin appeared for the first time to Mariette in the garden of the house.

Since then The Virgin appeared again to Mariette on January 18th, on January 19th, on January 20th, February 11th, February 15th, February 20th and for the last time on March 2nd.

The Messages received by Mariette from the Virgin

"Stretch out your hands into the water. This stream is especially devoted to me. Good night and we'll meet again."

"I am the Virgin of the Poor. This steam is for all nations for the sick! I shall pray for you. I shall pray for you, goodbye for now."

"I would like to see a small chapel."

"I have come to relief the suffering; I shall see you again soon."

"Have Faith in Me: I shall believe in you. Pray a lot, goodbye for now."

"My beloved child, pray a lot. Goodbye for now."

"I am the Mother of The Redeemer, Mother of God. Pray a lot, farewell!"

    Thanks a million for sharing. I have never heard of this place. Chapelle des Apparitions is very picturesque. Small ceramic plaques ordered by the pilgrims who have been healed by the Virgin of the Poor look fantastic!
