Kalwaria Zebrzydowska Pilgrimage Park Vacation Packages

Kalwaria Zebrzydowska: the Mannerist Architectural and Park Landscape Complex and Pilgrimage Park, which dates back to the first half of the 17th century, is a cultural landscape located south of Krakow that covers an area of the Zar and Lanckoronska hills. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This extraordinary testimony of piety and culture was the first of the large-scale Calvaries built in Poland, and it became a model for numerous later projects. It is notable among European Calvaries for its distinctive architectural features, for the skillful amalgamation of religious devotion and nature, and for the uninterrupted tradition of the mysteries enacted here. The sanctuary, devoted to the veneration of the Passion and to Marian worship, is an outstanding example of Calvary shrines in the Counter-Reformation period, which contributed to the growth of piety in the form of pilgrimages. The pilgrimage park, a garden of prayer, is closely related to the themes of Christ`s Passion and the life of the Virgin Mary.

Tours to Kalwaria Zebrzydowska are available from Krakow.
