Church of St Jacek Dominican Convent
The combined St Jacek’s Church and Dominican Convent are regarded as the largest sacral complex in Warsaw and were built by Joannes Italus between 1612 and 1638. The original church possessed fourteen altars and five chapels. In 1944 it was adapted as a hospital, treating injured insurgents of the Warsaw Uprising.


Church was rebuilt in 1947 – 1959. Today’s most interesting features of the church are beautiful vaulting above the aisles, the Gothic chancel, decorated with stuccowork and the 17th century, baroque tombstones of Adam and Malgorzata Kotowski. The interiors of the chapel were the tombstones are located, contain painting depicting the Holy Mother of God with the baby Jesus, as well as marble epitaphs with effigies of the founders painted on a sheet of metal.
