Shrine of Our Lady of Sanctuary
On the foundations of the old church, which was built after the Turks had left the area, a new church was built in 1709 when Aljmaš was proclaimed a Marian shrine. Throughout history, four churches in three centuries were built in Aljmaš. In the Croatian War of Independence, Aljmaš lost its parish church, which was destroyed to the ground. In 2003, this small village finally received a new parish church with the statue of Our Lady of Sanctuary, which was crowned by Pope John Paul II on June 7th of the same year in Osijek.
