Chapel of the Holy Trinity in Chlumec

Baroque chapel with a view of the town

Out of gratitude for being spared before the plague broke out in 1680, Count Franz Kolowrat-Krakowsky had the Chapel of the Holy Trinity built on Mount Horka in 1691. The chapel, built in Italian Baroque style, has an unusual triangular plan, alluding to the motif of the Holy Trinity by French architect Jean Baptiste Mathey, who was working in Bohemia at the time and designed the building.
In 1830 the Counts of Westphalen-Fürstenberg became the owners of Chlumec. Josef Klement Graf von Westphalen had a family tomb built on the Horka under the chapel.

In the second half of the 18th century, 14 Stations of the Cross were erected on the way from the village church up to the chapel.
