Exceptional religious experiences are the substance of stories the world over. The Zak van Zuid-Beveland is no – ha! – exception. Go past places of devotion and track mysterious legends on this 34.7 km bike ride.
The Mary’s Well outside Baarsdorp is a well-known legend locally. Allegedly, the Virgin Mary appeared on this very spot, imbuing the water with healing powers. In 2005 the well was restored and it is now a place of peace and reflection.
The village of Heinkenszand has its very own Lourdes cave, next to the Roman-catholic Blasius church. Over time, the number of pilgrims has dwindled, though the spot retains its recuperative vibe. You’ll feel rejuvenated when you bike on, towards Nisse, for the ancient murals you’re so keen to see.
