The elusive charm of Pomeranian ”pearls”, attractive to tourists and residents, draws both to the more and the less-known places across the whole region.

Pieta at the Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows


Ul. 8 Marca

83-400 Kościerzyna

Neo-Gothic Chapel of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady of the Angels, located at the street of March 8th was built in 1871.

Its construction was closely associated with the creation of the Department of St. Mary of the Angels serving as a school for young females in Koscierzyna.

The most valuable monument of sacred art located inside of the chapel is a stone, polychrome Gothic sculpture dating from approx. 1430 depicting Mary seated on the throne, holding on her lap the dead body of Christ. The famous pieta has been in Koscierzyna since 1863 when it came to the town from Chelmno along with acquiring custody over the Department of sisters of mercy.
