The Cathedral in Kielce
In 1171 the Bishop Gedeon founded a collegiate church under the invocation of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on "Wzgorze Zamkowe" (Castle Hill). It was a Romanesque-style temple. It was rebuilt and extended several times throughout ages to finally resemble an early Baroque three-aisle basilica. In the interiors of the Cathedral it is worth seeing the Gothic triptych depicting a crowning ceremony of the Mother of God and the baroque main altar designed by Fontana.
Visitors can also find there a painting depicting the Gracious Mother of God of Kielce with her Child. Tourists are invited to see the cathedral treasury and descent into the underground crypt of the bishops of Kielce.
