St. Mary’s Chapel stands on a hill just above the city. It was built in the 18th century and has a chic baroque interior, in which the altar of the Virgin Mary stands out. 5 km northeast of Shan are the cities of Nendeln and Eschen, where Roman settlements and the ruined walls of a Roman palace have also been excavated.

Here the oldest chapel of the country is interesting – the chapel of St. Mamertus. From the city of Schellenberg, in the northeast of the country, the historical route begins, which passes through the excavation sites where the remains of ancient settlements dating back to the Neolithic were found.
