Kaple svatého Ignáce (Všemily)

( Rock chapel (Všemily) )

The St Ignatius Rock Chapel (Skalní kaple) is a chapel in Všemily (Schemmel) in the Czech Republic, which is entirely built into a hollowed-out block of rock. It is one of the most notable holy monuments in Bohemian Switzerland.

The chapel was first mentioned in directory of the crosses and statues of the diocese of Windisch Kamnitz in 1835:

A non public chapel, hewn out of the rock, inside a painting of Saint Ignatius. It stands on farming land. Its patron lives in Kaltenbach and no-one from the parish will take on the advowson, because it is made of stone, damp and everything in it is likely to decay soon.

Astonishingly, in spite of that, the chapel has survived to the present day. Even following the expulsion of the German folk after the Second World War, there were people amongst the new inhabitants of the village who looked after the chapel and protected it from threatened abandonment and destruction. Today the chapel is under the care of the municipal office of Jetřichovice (Dittersbach), to which the Všemily belongs today.
