Collegiate Church

Dobre Miasto, Poland

The Gothic collegiate complex built from 1357–1389, with a splendid church, on which Pope John Paul II conferred the title of minor basilica (1989). Undoubtedly, one of the biggest tourist attractions beside the magnificent interior and furnishings of the church is the organ with 49 tones and 3522 pipes. The former capitulary library houses a parish museum, which is open to visitors. It contains the remains of the old outfit of the collegiate. Unfortunately, the rich vault as well as the collection of books and manuscripts largely scattered after World War II.

A majestic temple in the brick Gothic style characteristic for this region. The furnishings are breathtaking - altars, statues, a pulpit, a baptismal fence, stalls, paintings - masterpieces of Gothic, Late Gothic and Baroque created over the course of several centuries. In the courtyard of the adjoining buildings, there is a well-kept patio surrounded by stylish cloisters.

A beautiful temple and the area directly adjacent to it.

Gorgeous! It amazes with its size! And no wonder, because it is the second largest Gothic temple in Warmia. We had the opportunity to visit and inside. Admire, among others wonderful gothic sculptures. And of course, also feel the greatness and this power. Magnificent vaults. The whole collegiate church complex also has to be visited and watched. It's a great place! Don't miss Dobre Miasto because you have to visit it, see it and feel the atmosphere of Cittaslow.

It makes an impression. A large, high brick church from the 14th century.

The monumental temple is impressive and is the second largest church in Warmia. Unfortunately, I could only see the collegiate basilica from the outside, as it was closed during my visit to Dobre Miasto. Hence my 3-star rating. This Gothic pearl should be available to tourists and to believers who, while passing through, want to visit the church for prayer and not admire its interior from behind bars. Maybe next time it will work.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
