Poznań Fara

The Parish Church, aka Fara (from the German Pfarre), is one of Poznań’s most impressive historic monuments. Created as a Jesuit temple in the 17th century, it gained the status of ‘lesser basilica’ in 2010 thanks to Pope Benedict XVI. The official name of this establishment is actually quite a mouthful: 'The Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Mary Magdalene and St. Stanislaus,' which is why both we and the locals prefer the much simpler 'Fara.' The church boasts an interior by a veritable who’s who of Roman Baroque artists, with some fine period ornamentation found in the chapels of the Holy Cross (which features a 16th-century crucifix), and the Virgin Mary (which has a precious copy of the painting The Mother of God of Incessant Help). Organ concerts played on an instrument dating from 1876 take place on Saturdays at 12:15. Don't miss the basilica’s inner courtyard, a peaceful spot which is usually hosting some outdoor exhibition or other. From there, it's only a few steps to Chopin Park.
