  Shrine to Our Lady of Europe
by bugalugs
 
 

Besides the small chapel there is also a little museum.
Apparently the shrine was robbedby a pirate called Red Beard but thankfully the 15th century statue of Our Lady and Jesus is still there.Outside the shrine there is a whipping post which was used by the British when the Shrine was used by them as a guardhouse.

Address:

Europa Point, P.O.Box269

Directions:
Near Europa point, head up the road, going uphill, turn left into a small housing estate, keep to the left and you will see the shrine.
