Pretty chapel in great setting

Tiny church with its traditional bell pull. The bell can be heard all around the area when pulled by anybody with a 'wish' or 'prayer'.

Choose to climb 99 steps or go round the side on the path the easy way. the church is lovely and be sure to pull the bellrope and make a wish, just like everyone else. Better still, go up the steps and down round the path to make a little circular walk back to the boat, and the lovely views.

ring the bell is a joke. Not much in the church. Can climb up the tower and see the view but the admission is expensive.Not a deal.

Standard statues of saints, gilded alter, much like other Catholic Churches in Europe, not as dazzling as most are. The "ring the bell" is a new twist on the wishing well. View from the tower is barely worth the climb or the admission price, but while you're there, might as well do it. I don't get that this is a... More

We paid to visit the church but were not very impressed. People like to go in the church in order to ring a bell which supposedly brings them luck.

Super church worth visiting inside if you get the opportunity - short walk from the lake up some steep steps but worth the trip - see bled island for more details

Just a bell which everone inside can ring, no other attraction than that, just keep ringing the bell all day long.

I was here almost 30 years ago, and could hardly believe my eyes at how this magical place is being restored. The sacred spaces are being respectfully and lovingly preserved, and the rest of the island is becoming a miniature modern playground. Wow!
