Csatka is a village in Komárom-Esztergom county in Hungary at the North-Eastern edge of the Bakony Mountains. The first written mention of the village dates from 1326. A Pauline monastery was established here in 1357. Following Turkish destruction, the Pauline monks were able to return only in 1630. They ran a flourishing manor until the time of Joseph II who decreed many religious orders to be disbanded.

The chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin is a famous place of pilgrimage. It is connected to a holy well, the water of which is believed to be an agent of healing.

Numerous legends are attached to the Holy Well. A forest chapel has stood next to the springs since 1863, when it became a recognised place of pilgrimage. In recent years it has been visited primarily by Roma pilgrims who also celebrate mass in their own language. Interestingly, concurrently with the religious festival is a tradition, the” girl’s fair „at which parents look for a bride-to-be for their male children.

In the village is a Gothic church built in the 1300’s underwent Baroque reconstructions in 1779 and 1801.
