Wandering is something inborn in humans. Each of us has places to return, be it the countryside of our childhood, good friends or sites where one can find fresh ideas and encouragement of the spirit. Some places may look ordinary and even quite unimpressive, but this is where the past lost through the ages can be found, forming a true spiritual cycle that can be rediscovered. The Holy Sepulchre in Mimoň is a site that features two contradictory ideas crossing each other, death and resurrection. It is here where the path rises and where it ends, heading to the symbols of Marian devotion reflecting traditional love of people. It takes the pilgrim along the gallery of statues of saints to reach a temple consecrated to St. Peter and St. Paul, the apostolic princes. After a symbolic stop by the Garden of Gethsemane, the route continues via Calvary back to the grave, the place of resurrection. About 2 km in length, the tour shows the wayfarer the richness and the beauty of the local baroque architecture, while perhaps causing their spirit to contemplate a little at each stop.
