Full description
Enjoy a 7 to 8-hour pilgrimage tour from Krakow and visit many religious sights in Poland on this approximately 100 kilometer round trip from Krakow. 

You will first visit the Lagiewniki district of Krakow, made famous by Saint Sister Faustina Kowalska who lies in the 19th century Church of St. Joseph. The church has become a pilgrimage destination where people from all over Europe come to pray and visit the St Faustina’s tomb. You will also see Sister Faustina’s Sanctuary, the Shrine of Divine Mercy and the John Paul II Center where his relic lies.

You will also visit the UNESCO site of Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, a popular destination for tourists and pilgrims where you can see some of the famous Way of the Cross with 42 chapels illustrating the passion of the Christ. You will also visit other noteworthy historical sites including the church and monastery of the Friars Observants, dating back to the 17th century and the reportedly miraculous picture of the Mother of God of Kalwaria which has been there since 1641. Every year on Good Friday there is a cross road with live characters.

Finally you will arrive in the town of Wadowice, where Karol Wojtyła (Pope John Paul II) was born. Here you will visit his family house with modern multimedia museum next to the parish church dating back to the 15th century where he was baptized. The order of the tour may change.
