Odile de Hohenbourg was born blind, hidden, because her father ordered her death, she found the sight at her baptism. As a result, his father, Duke of Alsae Adalric known as Etichon, offers him a castle which she changed into a convent. Today, the abbey of Mont Saint Odile is a place of pilgrimage and prayer. The convent consists of the chapel of St. Odile, the Chapel of the Cross, the convent church, the Chapel of the Angels, the Chapel of Tears, the panoramic terrace, the source of St. Odile and the pagan wall.
Legend has it that Sainte-Odile made this source spring below the abbey to cure a blind man of his blindness. The spring is still flowing and pilgrims often gather at the miracle site, drink it directly or carry bottles of this miraculous water.
