"Ornate stalls" Top 5 Page for this destination Basilica of St Mary - Kosciol Mariacki Tip by matcrazy1

by matcrazy1

Ornate stalls in the chancel appear an outstanding achievement of the early- Baroque woodwork. Enlarge my picture, please.
They are located on both sides of front part of basilica (the chancel) - sitting there is forbidden either for prayers and for visitors.

Just a few explanations:
CHANCEL is the part of a church containing the altar where the priests and choir sit.
STALLS are special sittings in a church for important persons usually located close to altar.
