Medugorje is a town located in Bosnia and Herzegovina about 25 km southwest of Mostar and close to the Croatian border.
It is a sacred place where six children saw apparitions of the Virgin Mary in the 1980s. On the hillside the Virgin Mary spoke to them and some of the children, who are adults now, still see her on a regular basis. Medugorje is an extremely popular pilgrimage site for Catholics and many miracles still occur there today. There have been cases of restored vision, healed illnesses, cured paralysis, and even rosaries changing from silver to gold.
Every year, millions of pilgrims hike up the Krizevac and Podbrdo hills to the crosses at the top and pray.
