Kalwaria Zebrzydowska - passion plays
The church, monastery and the pilgrimage park of the Bernadine Order complex in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Baroque church, built in the 17th century, houses the revered painting of Our Lady of Kalwaria Zebrzydowska. The Calvary, or the Way of the Cross, is lined with shrines, chapels and small churches which are picturesquely set among hills and valleys. The sanctuary is visited by approximately one million pilgrims each year and is renowned for its passion plays. The most important processions are held during Holy Week (Easter) and on the Ascension Day.
