Blessed Alojzije Stepinac spent 5 years in prison in the Lepoglava penitentiary before being taken to his native Krašić. The penitentiary is located right next to the Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, where there is the altar of the Blessed next to which you can pray in peace.
Immediately above the church and the penitentiary is the hill Gorica that leads to the chapel of St. John. There is a slight climb to the chapel and the path along which the stations of the Way of the Cross are located, depicting the anguish and suffering that Blessed Alojzije Stepinac experienced during his stay in Lepoglava.
We recommend that in prayer and contemplation you pray along the stations of the Way of the Cross, surrounded by the greenery of nature, and finish your way with the last stop on the meadow, where is the chapel of St. John, which offers a view of the town of Lepoglava and the penitentiary.
