The Chapel with the Black Madonna is located inside the Jasna Gora monastery fortress. The icon is usually on display inside the chapel, although it is covered with a sliver screen at night and from noon till 13:30. It is also possible to walk behind the icon, however this can be difficult because there are always crowds inside the chapel and in the pilgrim "season" you will need a minor miracle to get close to the iconic painting.
The origin of the painting itself is not know. The picture has a seeming similarity to Byzantine icons, and it was given to the paulite order in the 1380 ties after being brought to Czestochowa from Ruthenia.
Address: The monastery
Directions: The entire city is more or less centered round this picture, it will be hard to miss it.
