Church of the Holy Spirit
The little wooden Church of the Holy Spirit existed since 14th century. It was burnt down by Swedish invasion in 1655. The present church was constructed between 1707 – 1711 to replace the previous building and was also rebuilt after World War 2.


Its designer was an architect Jozef Piola. Today it is a two-storey building with a plain façade and two high towers. The pilasters are ornamented with cornices and niches containing figures of the saints. Every year, pilgrims gather in this Baroque church before setting off to Jasna Gora Monastery in Czestochowa.
