sources are located in Kromołów, which is a district of

rebuilt in the Baroque style. It is a three-nave church with
two towers at the front. In the adjacent seventeenthcentury monastery building, there is now a parsonage.

were consecrated in 1997. The size of the neo-Gothic
church is impressive. The towers rise to more than 80
meters! Inside, among others, there are a beautiful altar,
stained glass windows and a nice sounding organ.
