location Siluva
function square, urban plan
contributed by G_Natkevicius

Siluva is a provincial town in the centre of Lithuania with a population of 1,000. As one of the world's best known pilgrim destinations, Siluva hosts the biggest religious celebration in Lithuania every year in early September. Siluva is one of the five Holy Mary's Apparition places in Europe officially recognized by the Catholic Church. The design of the square and the connection between the Basilica and the Chapel succeeded only partly: the lack of time and money stopped the extending of the square which had to go from the Basilica door to the Chapel door through the cemetery on the hill. There were intentions to rebury the graves, with the consent of relatives, on the sides of the hill. But so far, the line of the square beginning at the Basilica is interrupted at the cemetery fence.
