Lezajsk

Magnificent organ

Lezajsk’s main attraction is the 17th century Bernardine church and monastery surrounded by defensive walls with towers. Throngs of tourists and pilgrims arrive to visit the vast late-Renaissance basilica that shelters a miraculous icon of the Madonna and Child from the second half of the 16th century as well as the famous baroque organ (late 17th c.), one of the finest in Poland.

Organ concerts are held regularly in summer and the International Organ Festival is held here each May. Lezajsk has also a historical town hall and burgher houses from the 18th century.
