It is one of the most famous pilgrimage site in the world. And all due to the famous Icon considered by many believers (and not only) to be miraculous.

For centuries the place is also center of Polish identity. The Black Madonna is named Queen of Poland and historical event took place in 1655 there. Swedish who attacked Poland conquered all big cities but couldn't conquer the monastery. It was finally the turning point in war.
