Antonius Chapel in the Klosi

In 1750, old Zendenkastlan Christian Walden donated the chapel dedicated to St. Anthony of Padua in the Klosi in his will. 

St. Anthony

St. Anthony is the patron saint of the cities of Padua, Lisbon, Paderborn and Hildesheim as well as of the professions of baker, swineherd, miner and social worker. He is invoked in cases of infertility, fever, plague, shipwreck, war distress and cattle diseases, as well as for the retrieval of lost objects (hence the joking name Schlampertoni). He is also said to help with a good birth, growing old and a good harvest. His patronage of the poor is particularly well known (donations for the needy are collected under the name of Antonius Bread).


The visitation act of 1863 called for a total renovation. On 6 November 1921, the "St. Antoni Mat" of Kastlan Walden was auctioned off for 5900 francs. The last renovation took place under the direction of architect Paul Sprung in 1991/1992.
