Church of St. Mary Magdalene
The church was built in the early 15th century, in 1402. St. Mary Magdalene is celebrated on July 22 in the Catholic Church. The veneration of Mary Magdalene began in the 12th century. Mary Magdalene was born in Bethany, which was located near Jerusalem. After the death of their parents, Mary and her brother and sister inherited great wealth. She was beautiful and rich, and because she had a big desire for love she had many lovers. Having heard about the miracles of Jesus, disgraced for his sins, she asked Him for forgiveness. When Mary Magdalene came to Jesus with tears in her eyes, she began to wash His feet, wiped them clean and lubricated with grease. After that, Jesus forgave her sins. Otherwise, this event is described in the Bible, in the Gospel of Luke.
