This event initiated a tradition of pilgrimages to Jasna Góra to pray and pay homage to the Mother of God, which continues to this day.

Since then, Jasna Góra has become a place of worship visited by pilgrims from all over the world. It was here that kings, knights, and ordinary people who sought support and spiritual strengthening prayed. The monastery survived many turbulent moments in Polish history, becoming a symbol of the nation's resistance and steadfastness.

 

Chapel of Our Lady

The Chapel of Our Lady is the heart of the sanctuary, where there is a miraculous painting of the "Black Madonna". It consists of three parts, and each of them has its own unique architectural and historical features. The oldest part, built in the Gothic style, houses a presbytery with an ebony altar from 1650. This is where the most holy painting hangs, which is the main goal of pilgrimages.

The chapel was expanded in the years 1641-1644, when a three-nave part and Renaissance vestibules from the mid-16th century were added. In the chapel you can see various items donated by people who experienced miraculous healing. These little things are a kind of testimony of the power and miracles that took place at Jasna Góra.

After a fire in 1690, the whole thing was rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries in the Baroque style, which gave the basilica its current, majestic appearance.

jeszcze do "Fucka" - trzeba najpierw poczytać, a potem pisać. "Bazylika św. Krzyża - jest to pierwotny kościół murowany z XV w. w stylu gotyckim. Był on po części rozbudowywany o nawy główne i boczne oraz o kaplice. Po pożarze w 1690 r. Całość została przebudowana w XVII i XVIII w formie trzynawowej Bazyliki (styl barokowy). Najwyższa nawa sklepiona kolebkowo osiąga 29 m, a nawy boczne sklepione są krzyżowo." Gratuluję spostrzegawczości :/

w sumie to jest niezły biznes, paulini trzepią kasiorę, ale żeby coś to miało wspólnego z bogiem i prawdziwą wiarą, ludzie pomudlcie sie do boga nie do jakiś cudownych obrazów, to przecierz jest bałwochwalstwo, bo co ten obreaz tak czczony może zrobić, równie dobrze mozna tam powiesić brudne gacie i tak znajdą sie ludzie co będą jeczcili
