ST. ROCH'S STRONGHOLD


“Fortalitium marianum” – this was the name given in 1639 by King Władysław IV Vasa to the fortress of Jasna Góra, which is one of the many fortresses defending the borders of the Polish Republic.
St. Roch's stronghold [the Morsztyns' stronghold], which constitutes a part of the fortress was built in its north-west corner in 1624-1639. Between 1678 and 1681, due to the development of artillery-related warfare, the stronghold was improved by surrounding it with broader walls. During the restoration works carried out in the 1990s, fragments of the original stronghold were uncovered and secured, which created an exhibition area for the collection of arms and national souvenirs.

The Shrine of Our Lady of Jasna Góra is the most popular Polish Marian shrine and one of the most important in the world.
