Warsaw: Czestochowa Tour
The Monastery of Jasna Gora in Czestochowa, Poland, is the third-largest Catholic pilgrimage site in the world. Home to the beloved miraculous icon of Our Lady of Częstochowa, the most important icon of the Catholic faith in Poland, depicting the Vrigin with the Christ Child, was probably painted in 1434 on the older Byzantine icon.
The image of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa, to which miraculous powers are attributed, is Jasna Góra’s most precious treasure. Founded in 1382 by Pauline monks who came from Hungary at the invitation of Władysław, Duke of Opole, the monastery withstood several sieges, including the legendary 40-day siege by the Swedes in 1655.
The present basilica dates from 1962 – 1728. The Baroque decoration of the high altar and of the ceiling, the latter by Karl Dankwart.
