  STONE PORTAL OF THE BASILICA
by matcrazy1
 
 

There is a stone portal closed with columns which leads to the Basilica. This door was closed when we visited the basilica - the side entrance to the basilica (to the right) was opened.

Look up, above the portal where is a stone carved cartouche with Magdalena Czartoryska’s coats of arms and over it an Our Lady statue (1837) in a window. Add reinforced concrete balcony (1934-1936). The side areas of the facade place richly framed niches with the statues of four Evangelists (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) dated from 1867-1873.
