This pilgrimage began in Italy in the 17th Century, the history of the monastery and the village Loretto, Burgenland. The owner of the rule Hornstein, Hans Rudolf von Stotzingen had brought home from a trip to Italy a copy of the miraculous image of Loretto, which was initially set up in his castle in Seibersdorf. On 8 September 1644, this statue in a newly built replica of the Holy House at the point of transfer from the Turks in 1529 destroyed St. John's Chapel at Loretto.
