Description
The church is located along the Grodzka street in the city of Cracow. Built in Romanesque style, it is one of the oldest buildings in Cracow and one of the best-preserved Romanesque buildings in Poland. It was the only church in Kraków to withstand the Mongol attack of 1241. Along the lower part of the broader section of its façade are small openings that served as defensive windows at a time when the church was a place of refuge from military assaults.From 1320 it was used by the Religious Order of St. Klara's. The building has been renovated many times. The Baroque domes atop the octagonal towers were added in 1639. #Church #Cracow #Kościół #Krakow
