Across the road from the Museum of the Battle of Legnica is the former Benedictine Abbey. Its central part is occupied by the Church of St Hedwig , a masterpiece of Baroque art dating from the 1730s and designed by Bohemian architect Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer, who also did the sublime Minorite church in Eger in northern Hungary. Inside, the vaulting has splendid frescoes by Bavarian painter Cosmas Damian Asam.
The fresco over the organ loft shows Princess Anna with the body of her husband after the battle.
