ST. BARBARA'S CHURCH, KRAKÓW

St. Barbara's Church, Kraków, Poland

This fairly modest church was built around 1400, originally as a cemetery chapel. Between 1488 and 1518 it had a Gothic makeover and later Baroque additions were made which give it a rather mixed look.

Immediately next door is a Jesuit monastery which survived until 1780 when the Jesuit order was disbanded. The monastery became a hospital and went through a succession of owners until it came back to the Jesuits in 1908.
