Wambierzyce and Bardo

Marian sanctuaries

Their Marian sanctuaries attract thousands of pilgrims every year. The Wambierzyce basilica with its monumental staircase was built in the Italian baroque style and has sumptuous artistic decorations (paintings and sculptures). The village and the surrounding hills are dotted with 130 Calvary chapels. The set of mechanised Nativity scenes with 800 figurines, in Polish szopka, is the shrine’s great attraction.

Bardo has a baroque church with a wooden figure of Our Lady with Child from the 12th/13th centuries. The monastery houses the Museum of Sacral Art.
