Jasna Gora, Czestochowa

Make a pilgrimage to one of the spiritual capitals of the Polish people, Jasna Gora. The church is home to the Black Madonna of Częstochowa, said to have special powers and thought to perform miracles. The monastery's spires and romantic architecture make an impressive sight on the open land where it stands. Thousands of pilgrims travel to the site in groups every year to honor the sacred objects, some crossing 350 km (217 mi) in 11 days to reach the monastery; you may catch a view of the procession. Even when visitors are in the thousands, the interior of the complex remains quiet. Pilgrims often fall on their knees in reverence as part of the tradition of honoring the Madonna.

  • I did not think, but between several sanctuaries that I visited this deeply moved me... Seeing the locals go every morning to pray before going to work was a sign of important faith. To go back.

  • The monastery has many features besides the chapel that houses the black Madonna of Cz Stochowa. The temple, the roof, the change, the statuette, the instrument and the decoration of the basilica are spectacular. In the side of the temple, there is a room with a close skala that if you ascend it to the tower. The tower has 2 levels.. Around 300 steps.

  • Great place if you want to experience the religious/spiritual part of Poland. Not very crowded during the weekdays, but full of people on Sundays and church holidays (especially those connected with Virgin Mary). Nearby there are plenty places to eat something.
  • Main and most important Sanctuary in Poland. In the sanctuary, the image of the Mother of God famous of the miracles. Fantastic place for the pray!!!
