The Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Krzeszów, located outside Jelenia Góra in southwest Poland, is considered to be one of the greatest examples of Baroque architecture in Europe.
Constructed between 1728 and 1735, its its ornate paintings and sculptures illustrate scriptural scenes, a common practice before literacy was widespread.
Also inside, the icon of Our Lady of Graces is said to be a hundred years older than the revered Black Madonna of Częstochowa.
Saint Joseph Church and a monastery house are also located adjacent to the basilica at the Krzeszów Abbey.
