The Stone Chapel

After a trip to Germany in December 2014, where inspiration for the chapel’s design was sought, the vision for a unique space took shape. Encountering the enchanting resonance of bells in small German towns, the idea of seven bells in the chapel was born. These bells, symbolizing the omnipresence of the Lord’s love, drew everyone’s attention, and gradually, they found their place in Florence. With statues of children playing instruments enhancing the joyous atmosphere, the chapel, whose construction began in June 2015, hosted its inaugural wedding by the end of November that year. Each union sealed within its walls receives their blessings, as the chapel accommodates up to 200 people.

The Chapel was built from stone that was repurposed from Nico’s Grandparents Farm near
Hendrina. The building was built by Mozambique Crafsmen.
