On the very edge of Vandans, at the end of Untervens, stands the Vens Chapel, also called the Vens Picture. This chapel owes its existence to a solemn pledge made in 1613: at the time, the plague was on the rampage in the village, killing 180 residents in three months. A certain Anna Planggin vowed, in honour of the Mother of God and St. Sebastian, to build a chapel if the Vandans village of Vens was spared the plague. Her prayer was answered; the plague stopped at the Mustergielbach stream and a small chapel was built in the same year.

Initially built in a safe place on a hill, the chapel was enlarged by more than half in 1697 and given a small bell. Since then it has also been considered a pilgrimage church, as evidenced by the many donated votive tablets. Over time, it was constantly enlarged and frequently restored. The chapel has 3 altars in the Baroque style, the high altar is decorated with a raised relief of the Last Supper, above which is the miraculous image of the Madonna with the baby Jesus. Nowadays, the chapel is a popular pilgrimage destination. The little church is also a popular place for weddings.
