An important object of cult is the crucifix from Wierzbna located in Monastery Church (Basilica). In 1616 a coachman driving past the crucifix desecrated it with a whip and lost his arm. Having seen in this accident an act of God, people decided to carry the crucifix to the gothic Monastery Church. It had not burnt down despite two fires from 1633 and 26th May 1677. In the Basilica there is also a miraculous sculpture of St. Emmanuel from Kłodzko.

Another important facility is St. Joseph Church, erected for the needs of the cult of the saint carpenter. There are over 50 unique polychromy paintings. Pilgrims have been arriving here for worship of St. Joseph, the patron of the Holy Family. The Church is the place of meeting of the St. Joseph’s Brotherhood.



Less known place is Dungeon (pol. Ciemnica) – dual-layer chapel of the Calvary, the 9th Station of the Cross with the miraculous sculpture of Christ. Many healings have happened here. The faithful left here crutches and votive paintings.
