Kalwaria Zebrzydowska – UNESCO site
Kalwaria Zebrzydowska is a place 40 km (25 miles) southwest of Krakow. Its Sanctuary is located in a picturesque setting of the Żar mountain in Beskid mountain range and consists of a basilica and monastery buildings. It dates back to the 17th c. The whole complex along with 42 chapels was entered in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1999 as the only calvary ever included in this prestigious list.
A huge area encircling the Sanctuary is covered by the so-called Calvary Paths, imitating the landscape of Jerusalem and this way resembling the site of Jesus Christs’s Passion.
