Plánice - Zbyslav – Chapel of Our Lady of Klatovská

Half an hour's drive from Němčicí, near the village of Zbyslavi, picturesquely surrounded by forests, in the landscape that was the property of this monastery from the foundation of the Cistercian Monastery Pomucký pod Zelená Hora until its destruction (around 1150 to 1450), there is a chapel with a well water, recognized by people as medicinal. During the summer, a statue of the Virgin Mary from the parish church of Němčické resides in the chapel. I remember that 30 years ago - I don't know if it is still - they carried this statue on Marian's feast day, March 25, from the German church to the chapel in a solemn procession, a procession of bridesmaids and a number of believers from the whole vast settlement, to the sounds of music, bells, singing and mortars.

It remained there for the whole spring and summer and was moved back either on the German pilgrimage on August 15 or until the Marian holiday - September 8. This statuette was decorated with a lot of silver money of Emperor Leopold I, Charles VI, Empress Maria Theresa, Emperor Joseph II and others, and with this valuable property it remained safely in the chapel for many years, until 25 years ago a thief came and robbed the statuette, it was not traced. ..
The following legend is connected to the founding of the chapel at the healing spring: In Měcholupech castle lived a sick countess, whom no medicine could cure. Someone advised her to drink water from the Zbyslavská studánka and bathe in this water. The countess had water drawn from the well, used it - and got well. It is said that the countess had a chapel built near the well out of gratitude to the Virgin Mary for her healing with water.
If this rumor is true, the mentioned countess could only be the wife of Count Mikuláš of Morzin, who owned Měcholupy between 1692 and 1696.
