Ecumenical Memorial Column (Kishegy)

Nyalka-Kishegy was the wine-growing estate of the Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma, which is crossed by the Way of St James leading to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
There is an ecumenical memorial column carved from oak at this point in the Hungarian stretch of the “El Camino” pilgrimage way. The greetings and symbols of the Catholic, Reformed, Evangelical and Unitarian denominations, as well as the symbol of the pilgrimage way of St James and the tree of life motif were created by Ferenc and Csilla Gál-Tóth. “Set off, so that you can arrive”, reads the pilgrims’ slogan on the 500kg column, blessed and consecrated by representatives of the four churches on 31 May 2013.
