Sulejów Abbey was a Cistercian abbey founded in 1176 by the duke Kazimierz II the Just. The town of Sulejów grew up round it. The most notable parts of the abbey are the Romanesque church of Saint Thomas Becket of Canterbury and Romanesque fortifications which stopped the Mongol Hordes in the 13th century.

The monastery was dissolved in 1810. After many years of industrial and business use the surviving buildings are now used by the present parish.

It's a nice place, but unfortunately when it comes to Miód i Wino restaurants, it's a misunderstanding. Very little choice of dishes, upon order - Lunch dishes and drinks. Waiting for the drinks only takes about 30 minutes. This is not how it should be. When it comes to food, today salads cannot be eaten. No basic spices - salt. Out of 9 people, only one person was satisfied with the meal. Also for me only 1 star.

August 17-19 are for me and my wife moments of relaxation, rest in an atmospheric and amazing place. Authentically, this facility takes us back to the historical times of the Middle Ages (including music, building complex and equipment). Adding to this modern attractions (swimming pool with attractions, SPA with, among others, a floating pool, which made a great impression on us, my wife praised the candle massage very much), good cuisine and very friendly service, you can really spend wonderful moments in the vicinity of Pilica. I heartily recommend!

A very atmospheric place. Perfect for a walk and relaxation. Beautiful surroundings, few tourists, so you can really breathe. Currently, it is worse with this silence, because renovations are currently underway, but in the future it will be even more beautiful there. There is a hotel, restaurant and museum on site. Next to it there is a parking lot and a few shops and a pizzeria. It is really worth visiting this area.

Historic Site of the week

Monte d'Accoddi

Monte d"Accoddi is a Neolithic archaeological site in northern Sardinia, located in the territory of Sassari. The site consists of a massive raised stone platform thought to have been an altar. It was constructed by the Ozieri culture or earlier, with the oldest parts dated to around 4,000–3,650 BC.

The site was discovered in 1954 in a field owned by the Segni family. No chambers or entrances to the mound have been found, leading to the presumption it was an altar, a temple or a step pyramid. It may have also served an observational function, as its square plan is coordinated with the cardinal points of the compass.

The initial Ozieri structure was abandoned or destroyed around 3000 BC, with traces of fire found in the archeological evidence. Around 2800 BC the remains of the original structure were completely covered with a layered mixture of earth and stone, and large blocks of limestone were then applied to establish a second platform, truncated by a step pyramid (36 m × 29 m, about 10 m in height), accessible by means of a second ramp, 42 m long, built over the older one. This second temple resembles contemporary Mesopotamian ziggurats, and is attributed to the Abealzu-Filigosa culture.

Archeological excavations from the chalcolithic Abealzu-Filigosa layers indicate the Monte d"Accoddi was used for animal sacrifice, with the remains of sheep, cattle, and swine recovered in near equal proportions. It is among the earliest known sacrificial sites in Western Europe.

The site appears to have been abandoned again around 1800 BC, at the onset of the Nuragic age.

The monument was partially reconstructed during the 1980s. It is open to the public and accessible by the old route of SS131 highway, near the hamlet of Ottava. It is 14,9 km from Sassari and 45 km from Alghero. There is no public transportation to the site. The opening times vary throughout the year.
