St. Anthony's Church

  ul. Św. Antoniego 30 ,   Old Town          (+48) 71 792 52 70     31 Jul 2019
Fans of slightly excessive Baroque grandeur will find a fast friend in St. Anthony, an opulent Roman Catholic eyeful on the street of the same name. Consecrated in 1695, the church passed hands from the Franciscans to its current Pauline caretakers as recently as 1998. St. Anthony’s is unique for being unusually positioned north to south while almost all of the city’s other cathedrals are arranged east to west. Inside you’ll discover a highly decorative altar and tabernacle, a green marble pulpit and gilded stars on the vaulted ceilings - if you can get in, that is. For whatever reason, the church is only open to groups (Mon-Fri 12:00-15:00, Sat 07:00-18:00), and individuals are discouraged for showing up for sightseeing purposes.
