Geocache Description:


Povzpnite se na 351 m visok gric, “Slovensko kalvarijo“, kjer se lahko sprostite in uživate obdani z gozdovi in vinogradi (poskusite vino Pekrcan). Na vrhu Pekrske gorce stoji cerkvica, kjer lahko vsako nedeljo obišcete bogoslužje in do katere vas z vzhodne strani vodi križev pot s štirimi lepo obnovljenimi kapelicami. Z vrha grica se ponuja enkraten razgled na severno pohorsko pobocje in mariborsko ravnino.

KAKO JE NASTALA PEKRSKA GORCA

Pekrska gorca je geološka posebnost – je namrec tonalitni osamelec, locen od pohorskega tonalitnega masiva, ki se je dvignil na površje ob geološki prelomnici.

Kaj pravi legenda?

Legenda pravi, da je Pekrska gorca nastala zaradi vse bolj razuzdanega življenja Mariborcanov. Bog je sklenil Mariborcane kaznovati, zato je poslal nadnje zlodeja. Zlodej je odlomil del vrha na Pohorju in z njim nameraval zajeziti Dravo, da bi ta stekla preko jeza in prizadela Maribor z veliko poplavo. Na poti proti Mariboru pa je zlodej srecal Mater božjo. Tako zelo se je je prestrašil, da je kar odvrgel svoje breme in zbežal v noc. Na mestu, kjer je zlodejevo breme padlo na tla, je nastala Pekrska gorca. V zahvalo Materi božji so Mariborcani v letih 1832-1835 na njej postavili cerkvico Marije sedmih žalosti. Ob njej si lahko prav tako ogledate Tscheligijevo grobnico.


Ascend the 351 metre high hill, “Slovensko kalvarijo“ (Slovene Calvary), where you will be able to relax and enjoy the surrounding forests and vineyards (try the wine Pekrcan). At the top of Pekrska gorca stands a little church, where every Sunday you can attend mass. The Way of the Cross, with four beautifully renovated chapels, leads you up the eastern side to the church. From the top of the hill there is a unique view of the northern slope of Pohorje and the Maribor plain.

THE BEGINNINGS

Pekrska gorca is a geological peculiarity – it is an isolated tonalite hill, detached from the Pohorje tonalite massive, which rose to the surface at geological fault.

What does the legend say?

Legend says that Pekrska gorca arose due to the increasing loose living of the inhabitants of Maribor. God decided to punish the Mariborians and so he sent them the devil. The devil broke off part of the top on Pohorje because he wanted to stem the river Drava, so that the river would run over the dam and cause major floods in Maribor. On his way to Maribor the devil met the Mother of God. The devil was so frightened by this that he cast off his load and ran away into the night. On the spot where the devil's burden fell on the ground, Pekrska gorca arose. In gratitude to the Mother of God, the Mariborians in the years 1832 -1835 erected the little Church of Mary of Seven Sorrows on Pekrska gorca. There you can also see the vault Tscheligijeva grobnica.
