Scheveningen/Kijkduin beaches, The Hague: 10 reviews and 11 photos
Favorite thing: Just one step behind the Circus-Theatre and next to the Casino, Scheveningen, you can find the Lourdes Church (O.L. Vrouwe van Lourdes Kerk). Within in the hectic centre of Scheveningen a good friend told me about this spot. Besides the Old Church of Scheveningen there is this "oldest area" of Scheveningen, where the fisher-women gathered for a pray to heaven to bring back their loved-ones form the wild sea ...
Fondest memory: The name of Lourdes Church and it so peacefull Lourdes Grot (Cave) must have been turned up after the Bernadette of Lourdes myth. A lot of travellers come here to pray for a good trip on their way, or light a candle. There is a Maria-statue, pure white, in a corner and, when the light comes in at a particular time through the glass windows in the roof (midday), the light will shine right at the statue. It has been lightened up for now, though when I am there for a little meditation I can imagine how people get surprised by the sudden light coming in from up heaven ...
A friend of me could not resist the peaceful candles at one of my fondest spots ...
