Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec

Address:

Description

Karol Wojtyła enjoyed his visits to the abbey in Tyniec, where he started going in the 50s.

Here, he conducted spiritual retreats before his consecration of a bishop in 1958, he participated in the celebration of the 900th anniversary of the monastery in 1975, and visited the abbey unexpectedly in 2002 during his papal trip to Poland – for the last time, as it turned out.
