Beautiful capture and lighting. V.
The church is also called the Shrine of Our Lady of Grace the Patron of Warsaw
Inside the church, in main altar, the most important item is the miraculous image of St. Mary of Grace, who is considered the patron saint of Warsaw.
The painting was brought to Warsaw in 1651 by archbishop Jan de Torres, a nuncio of the Pope Innocent X, who gave it to Polish king John Casimir (Jan Kazimierz), and the king gave it to the warsaw convent. From that time the image of Virgin Mary of Grace is venerated in Warsaw.
