Maria Luggau is a town in the Austrian municipality of Lesachtal, which represents a scattered village with about 300 inhabitants. It was named after Maria, Magna Mater Austriae,  and has a church of XVI century, named after Saint Maria as well. This place attracts pilgrims for already 500 years. The stamp featuring Saint Maria is framed by a beautiful unusual perforation corresponding to the frame of the original icon.
