Geocache Description:


Dejinné pocátky Svaté Hory jsou opredeny povestmi. Kdy byla postavena puvodní kaplicka, jejíž zdivo je prý dosud zcásti obsaženo ve zdivu dnešní baziliky, není presne známo. Dle povesti ji dal postavit již ve 13. století rytír z rodu Malovcu jako dík Panne Marii za vyslyšené prosby, když ho ochránila pred pronásledujícími loupežníky. Nejstarší známý pudorys Svaté Hory je asi z roku 1658. Také pojmenování vrchu nad Príbramí je obestreno tajemstvím. Jeden z pravdepodobných výkladu muže být ten, který autorství pripisuje lidovému oznacení, za nímž se skrývá hora, jejíž svatost je dána svatyní Panny Marie a pobytem muže svatého života - poustevníka. Vodit procesí na Svatou Horu se stalo zvykem již v 16. století Ješte v 17. století se svatohorský areál stal jedním z nejrozsáhlejších a nejvýznamnejších rane barokních objektu u nás. Krome šlechty se na stavbe a výzdobe podílela i mesta (Praha, Plzen, Mníšek a Breznice). Od 24. brezna 1990 je duchovní správa Svaté Hory sverena knežím kongregace Nejsvetejšího Vykupitele – redemptoristum. Zároven se stala Svatá Hora sídlem provinciála redemptoristu. Roku 1993 byly zrekonstruovány známé Svatohorské schody - doporucuji vybehnout. Svatou Horu navštevují poutníci a turisté z celého sveta.Je zde take Svatováclavský dub z doby Karla IV. According to tradition the first chapel of Our Lady was built here in 1260 by the knight Malovec. As early as in the 15th -16th centuries a little sanctuary with a tower and bells was situated on the premises. This little church provided a place for the contemporarily adored statuette of Our Lady, which from 1348 had been worshipped by Arnošt of Pardubice, the first Prague Archbishop, in his home chapel in Príbram. The little sanctuary at Svatá Hora was originally watched over by recluses, the most famous of which was Jan Procházka from Nymburk who was healed from his blindness here in June 1632. In 1647 Svatá Hora was entrusted to the Jesuits. This order stayed here for 126 years - till 1773. During that period the present sanctuary was built in 1673 consecrated in honour of the Assumption of Our Lady. The premises are conceived as a Marian castle. We enter it through the Prague Gate, and the main cathedral is situated in a little courtyard encompassed by open cloisters with four chapels in each corner that are dedicated to the main mysteries from the life of Our Lady (Mníšek Chapel to the Immaculate Conception, Prague Chapel to the Annunciation of Our Lady, Breznice Chapel to the Dolorous Mother of God, Pilsen Chapel to the Death of Our Lady). In the years 1773-1861 the church was administered by priests from the Prague Archbishopric. In 1861 Prague Archbishop Cardinal Bedrich Josef Schwarzenberg summoned priests from the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (Redemptorists) to Svatá Hora. These stayed here till April 13th, 1950, when they were violently removed during the suppression of monasteries in this country. After 40 years, on March 1st, 1990, they returned to Svatá Hora by a decree of Cardinal František Tomášek. The main "Coronation" pilgrimage takes place every year on the third Sunday after the commemoration of the Descent of the Holy Spirit, and a second large pilgrimage on the Sunday after the observance of the Assumption of Our Lady (after August 15th ).
