The story of the miller's daughter's love for the Spirit of the Mountains prompted local people to build a commemorative "Love Mill". As the folk parable says: "only here the mill wheel changed flour into flour and turned the lives of people, and the daughter of a miller - she made an equal princess." The grinder has a wonderful power that makes the feeling of love reciprocate.
Chapel of St. Anna in Grabowiec
The current brick chapel. St. Anne, built in the Baroque style, was funded by Count Hans Anton von Schaffgotsch from Cieplice. The construction of the chapel began in 1718 and was completed in 1719. Casper Anton Joseph Jentsch (1699-1757) was the designer and builder. In 1812, the chapel was brought from the chapel of St. St. Lawrence on Śnieżka, a baroque altar with a sculpture of St. Lawrence and some furnishings.
After World War II, the chapel fell into oblivion. The baroque painting from the main altar, painted on a copper plate by the student Michael Leopold Willmann, is missing.
He found himself after many years and returned to his place in 2006.
It turned out that in the first half of the 20th century, for conservation, the picture was taken to Toruń. The overall appearance of the chapel of St. Anna, has not changed much for over 350 years. By the chapel, the thickest sycamore in the Giant Mountains grows, with a trunk circumference of about 4.5 meters.
