Trail of temples of Silesian Rome

Distance: 4.8 km Duration: 5:00

Visiting Silesian Rome, as Nysa used to be called in the past, allows us to move back in time and during one day admire the temples built in various architectural styles. Out trip starts on the market, where there is one of the bigger Gothic churches in Poland. The history of the St. Jacob and St. Agnes Basilica dates back to the 11th century. Not much away from the market, we may admire the buildings in the Baroque style. After leaving the very centre of the town, we will see the late-Baroque temple as well as the neo-Romanesque temple from the beginning of the 20th century. Finally, it is worth paying attention to the votive chapel which is a testament to the cult of St. Roch, who helped save the town from a plague.
