The cultural and natural value of the calvary in Piekary Śląskie
Languages of publication
The fine art of gardening in Poland abounds in garden layouts which place special emphasis on the theme of the sacred in landscape design. One of the instances in that respect is calvaries, i.e. a distinct group in the realm of sacred garden layouts that is primarily related to the Stations of the Cross and thus intended to commemorate the Passion of Jesus Christ. In addition, calvaries are designed with a view to reflecting the specific features of a given location and, in turn, emphasise the most significant natural and cultural values of the existing landscape.
