THE CONSTRUCTION OF the
After we first contacted Mario Botta in February of 2011, an on-site inspection
was scheduled in summer. After we received planning permission in 2012,
construction began on the 17th of July 2013. The chapel was inaugurated on
the 22nd of September 2014, Engelbert Kollard’s baptismal day, and has been a
sanctuary for people of all faiths, and a place for contemplation, prayer, and
gratitude ever since.
A book about the construction of the Granatkapelle chapel can be purchased at the Granatalm mountain lodge for 25 €.
