Muschelkreuz ('Shell cross')

Description

The 'shell cross' at Prester originates from 1757 and is one of the oldest wayside crosses in the Eupen area. It has a shell-shaped cavity in the middle to thank for its name. The cross probably also served as a station for the Corpus Christi processions which, in the 18th and 19th centuries, went from Eynatten via the St. Rochus Chapel and Prester back to Eynatten.
