Description

Swięta Lipka is located about 15 kilometers west from Ketrzyn. It lies between two lakes Wirowe and Dejnowa. The place has been the target of pilgrims since the fourteenth century.

Around 1350, there was already the first chapel, where many of the faithful from the area of Warmia and Masuria were crowded.

By the end of the 17th century, the Jesuits who taking care of Swieta Lipka started to build a new church, whose beauty and baroque splendor we can admire today.

Interesting sites, two high towers, cloistered churches surrounding the chapels and historic bodies make the sanctuary not only a religious place, but also an important tourist attraction of the region.

From May to the end of September practically every hour from 10.30 there are organ music concerts (15 minutes) in the sound of about four thousand pipes.
