Description

Jasna Góra is one of the most important places of worship of the Virgin Mary and has been the most important pilgrimage centre in Poland for hundreds of years. The miraculous image of the Black Madonna from Jasna Góra is especially worshipped by the faithful of the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Catholic Church. Upon arrival at the sanctuary, we visit the chapel with the miraculous image of the Black Madonna and the basilica. You can also visit the 600th-Anniversary Museum and the treasury on your own, or participate in a mass.
