WITNESSES OF FAITH

Poland is a country where you can see countless wayside crosses, figures of saints and tiny shrines. Due to the tradition people gather and pray near them. Some were built by monarchs to commemorate a victory in a battle, or in memory of some important events, others were put after big plagues or by poor inhabitants thanking God for help. All make people think about God while passing by.
In this gallery I would like to show small and bigger ones, wooden or made of stone. Some of them are really old. I hope you will find them as pretty and interesting as they are for me.
