Church of St Benedict

Church in Podgórze

Tucked into a wooded hillside above Podgórze, this mysterious little church is one of the oldest in Kraków. Historians are not certain of its origin, though archaeologists estimate that it was built in the 12th century. The interior has been restored, but the church is open only once a year on the first Tuesday after Easter, when the spring festival of Rękawka is celebrated.
