Nothing more misleading than locals in Lubawka, a small Polish town, saying that you won’t see anything interesting on the Holy Mountain situated nearby when you ask them how to get there. In fact this place is really worth to see if you’re looking for abandoned sacral places, as you can find here a few beautiful abandoned chapels and devastated sculptures of the former Way of the Cross. Despite the fact that the chapels are in a very bad conditions and the sculptures are almost completely destroyed, they all taken together still create a mystical atmosphere on the mountain. You can feel it going up the path, entering the chapels you find on the way and enjoying the silence in their emptiness where only the Saints and an angel look at you from the frescos reminding how great this place was in the past.

The landscapes and windows are absolutely . . . WOW! Beautiful.
Abandoned yet magnificent
What a place to be left abandoned like that! The art work so intact too! Thank you for this blog!
Thank you, glad that you liked it. That’s really impressive place, even now when it’s abandoned.
Awesome post! Love the mood.
Thank you 🙂 That’s beautiful place. I went there in the winter morning – snow and silence around made it even more impressive.
