Overview

Visitors should also see the Lichen Golgotha, i.e. an artificial rocky mountain that is 25 meters high. Father Eugeniusz Makulski began its construction in 1976, and the required soil was brought by the locals who were digging foundations for their houses. On August 16th, 1987 the Lichen Golgotha was consecrated.

I traveled with a large group of Catholics, and a Polish tour guide. But there is much to offer a traveler of any faith.
