Skull Chapel, Czermna, Poland

This is the place I have visited as a child while on an overnight camp. It left a lasted impression on me. I could not get it out of my mind and knew I will do anything to go back there again. At the time I did not have a camera. They were very expensive and I do not know a kid that had one back then.

About 25 years later I found myself planning a trip for my sister and my mom that included visiting this amazing chapel. I was ecstatic. This time I went “armed” with my camera, but was disappointed to find out you are not allowed to take any photos/videos inside of it.

Therefore, I am attaching the link for you all in English, so you can read about the history of the place, and see photos of the inside.

Basilica Of The Visitation, Wambierzyce, Poland

It was a place my mom wanted to see on our trip. She took mass in there, while my sister and I took photos (and later joined her by the end of the mass).

It is a sacred church and ground, worshiped by many.

I found this little piece of information (in English) on the internet:

“The present basilica is located on a hill, where in the twelfth-century, stood a wooden figure of Mary, the Mother of God. According to a chronicle from 1218, the blind Jan from Raszewo (Jan z Raszewa) regained his sight there. After the event, many pilgrims began visiting the area.”

…And they do to this day.
