The Chapel of peace was a very serene and zen place to visit. Our tourist guide took us there and I’m glad he did. Built in 1957 it was opened up to the public as a gesture from the family.

I was also told a plane crash by a local guide. The whole series of events was so tragic that there must be loads of documented info on it. Good luck with you research.
