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.

    Again on Jasna Góra and subsequent discoveries. Here you have to be, regardless of faith, beliefs and worldview. Breathtaking architecture and unique atmosphere. On the weekends a lot of pilgrims and tourists. Recommend

    Is the shrine of the black Virgin ¨ ¨, the protector of Poland. All very beautiful and Rico. Pictures, marble walls. Wonderful chandeliers. When we got there, I was going on the first Communion of several children. It was a moment of great faith and inspirational. There is a small museum, next to the Sanctuary, with many images and pictures of Pope John Paul II. Worth the tour, because you learn a lot of the history of the black Virgin and of Poland.

    It was good to see a place being kept repaired and in a good condition. It was interesting to learn more of the history of the city while visiting and the views of the city were spectacular.  more »

  • Very impressive. Watching the Black Madonna not in the book but live is really an emotion. The chapels are also very well decorated, so it is a pleasure also just staying there staring at such beautiful pieces of art.
  • Viewing the painting brought tears to my eyes - a truly unparalelled spiritual moment in my life!
  • If visiting, you must attend the 6am mass where they unveil the painting. Surreal experience.
  • The fabled Pauline Monastery that has an impressive sight
  • One of the most beautiful church's..toured the entire grounds...it was amazing.
