Minor Basilica in Brzozów

The essence of the baroque

After entering the temple, your attention is drawn to the baroque chancel with the main altar in red and gold colors. Three pairs of columns are positioned in a row to direct the gaze to the center of the altar, in which there is a painting from the 17th century with a scene of the Crucifixion. 107 relics of saints are collected in the reliquaries in the main altar.

The main nave is decorated with a frescoed barrel vault, enriched with lunettes. Noteworthy is the pulpit from the 17th century, with the statues of evangelists and other saints, floral motifs and a sculpture of a pelican feeding the young.


On the side opposite to the altar, above the entrance, there is an organ front. The oldest information about the organ (14-voice) comes from 1699. The organ currently used, from the second half of the 20th century, has 40 voices.
