Skrzatusz - village of Wielkopolska's region Diocesan Our Lady Dolorosa Sanctuary in Skrzatusz The Diocesan Our Lady Dolorosa Sanctuary in Skrzatusz, called "Czestochowa of the North", have been the prop of Catholicism for centuries and a place famous for miraculous healings. In 1575, in the time of Reformation, a figure of Our Lady Dolorosa was brought to the village of Skrzatusz. From this time on, Skrzatusz became well-known for miracles and graces, gained with the intercession of Our Lady Dolorosa. It was here that the generous gifts were sent by the king of Poland, Jan III Sobieski, to thank for his victory over the Turks, and it was also here, where Wojciech Konstanty Breza, the Starost of Nowy Dwor, built an impressive church. The Baroque building, existing to the present day, was erected in 1687 - 1694. Among the most important guests, praying here, were: Stanislaw Leszczynski, the king of Poland, cardinal Pacelli - later the Pope Pius XII and cardinal Wojtyla, later Pope John Paul II. The church has a sumptuous Baroque interior design - the main altar comes from the end of the 17th century. The walls of the chancel are painted with frescos from 1698, depicting the history of the Sanctuary. Pulpit and baptismal font date back to the end of the 17th century, richly decorated side altars were crafted at the turn of the 17th and the 18th centuries. The first organ also originates from the turn of the 17th and the 18th centuries, the other, newer one, was made in 1876.

A nice view on this organ with a symetrical framing and well controlled light in a difficult setting. I like the large columns and the large crest which seems to replicate the organ.

A fine capture of this attractive interior. Good light management despite the difficult conditions. I like the point of view and the symmetrical framing. Very good rendering of the architectural detail.

Elle est très belle cette petite église. L'orgue est magnifique et semble très bien entretenue. La lumière est parfaitement gérée et les moindres détails ressortent avec une grande netteté.
