  • Description


    In 1624 in the vicinity of Rytwiany town Golden Forest Hermitage was built for the Camaldolese order of Monte Corona congregation. At the time the Annunciation Church, monastic buildings, outbuildings and eremitorium, a complex of hermit houses came into existence.

    To this day arriving tourists may admire the church with baroque equipment, a part of one-storey monastic buildings with the so- called Tęczyński’s isolated monastery (the only preserved hermit house) and a part of outbildings, where the monastic kitchen, foresteria and the drugstore were located. Since 2001 Centre of Culture and Education “Źródło” has been taking care of the monastic complex. The Centre is planning to rebuild the ancient eremitorium (16 hermit houses), to reconstruct the garden and to build tourist-recreational facilities, in which the tourist will be transported to the enclave of silence and peace in order to regenerate one’s psychical and physical strength.
