Description

In a dense forest, in the wasteland of Mariánská Čeľaď, near the villages of Podhájska and Veľké Lovce, there are ruins of the old monastery of Paulists. The colossal building was once the seat of the monks of Paulists Order and part of its extensive premises were also a spa, garden, school, hospital or farm land.

According to archaeological findings found here, it can be said that the site was already inhabited in the Bronze Age. However, the exact time of the founding of the monastery and the name of its founder are still unknown.

To date, three wings of monastic buildings have been preserved around the court of paradise, a short wing extending northwards and a presbytery from the church that closed the court on the west side. The site is unmanaged and covered with wild vegetation.

Mariánská Čeľaď Monastery is less than 10 km away from the village of Podhájska. The trail leads up the hill into the dense forest, where after a while you will see a huge monastery ruin.
