Swieta Lipka Monastery



 

The small village of  Swieta Lipka is situated in the northern part of Poland, in the Warminsko-Mazurskie voivodship, about 70 km southeast of Olsztyn town.

The Jesuit monastic complex of Swieta Lipka is considered to be one of the most beautiful Baroque religious buildings in Poland. A Baroque gateway from the 18th century leads visitors and pilgrims into the Marian sanctuary. The three-nave basilica has a very impressive and richly adorned interior.

The monastery is also famous for its splendid Baroque organ, which was built in 1721. It has figures of saints and angels that can be set in motion by a special mechanism. The angel on the central part of the organ plays a mandolin, while the cherubs turn.
