"500th anniversary of the pilgrimage site of Maria Luggau"
Issue date: 31th May 2013

The Austrian Post issued a miniaturesheet for the 500th anniversary of Maria Luggau, located in the Lesachtal valley in Carinthia, as a pilgrimage site. The stamp is framed by a perforated lace border reminiscent of antique images of saints.

The picture looks identic with an old lithography of Joseph Wagner (1803—1861). It represent the villages Maria Luggau, Eggen and Guggenberg/Salach. In the background the Mt. Eggenkofel of the Lienzer Lolomites.
