Dominicans' Basilica of the Trinity

Dominicans' Basilica of the TrinityDominicans' basilica and monastery are located on the "Wszystkich Swietych" square, at the beginning of Stolarska street. In 1221 Iwo Odrowaz, a Krakow bishop, brought Dominicans from Bologne to Krakow and located them in the church of the Trinity. The church has been subject to several rebuilds, at the end of the 14th century, in 15th century, when gothic chapels were added and in 17th century, when baroque chapels of the Myszkowski, Lubomirski and Zbaraski families and the chapel of St. Jacek were built. The chapel of St. Jacek was inspired by the Sigismund's chapel from the basilica on the Wawel Hill. It is one of the most famous religious masterpieces in Poland, richly decorated by Baltazar Fontana, Karol Denkwart and Tomasz Dolabella. Chapel of the Virgin of the Rosary, built as thanksgiving for the victory in Vienna, is also worth seeing.

The huge fire, which consumed large parts of the old town in 1850, destroyed the basilica. The entire interior burned and large part of the construction was affected. Despite the massive amount of damage, Dominicans decided to rebuild the church. This was supervised by an architect named Teofil Zebrawski. The church which visitors can see today is an effect of the rebuild which took place between years 1850 and 1872.

The basilica of the Trinity is a tall Gothic basilica made of stone and brick.
