Krakow

Corpus Christi Church

  ul. Bożego Ciała 26 ,   Kazimierz         19 Sep 2018

This massive brick beauty from the 14th century takes up two entire blocks in Kazimierz, making it one of the city's largest holy sites. A three-naver in the Gothic style, the pulpit features a golden boat (with oars and a mast even) being held aloft by two mermaids. And though there are few things we like more than mermaids, the crowning glory has to be the towering golden altarpiece. According to legend, a robber who had stolen a precious relic from another church repented on this spot, abandoning the reliquary. The priests in pursuit saw a strange light emanating from the ground and discovering their sacred prize, founded a church here in recognition of the miracle.
