Żagań – "a city of 197 faces"

It is impossible not to be enchanted by Żagań! The spirit of remarkable figures from past eras, magnificent architectural monuments and enchanting nature are the elements which make this town worth visiting. We suggest starting your wandering from the Baroque palace, the former seat of the Żagań princes, which is considered to be one of the most precious monuments of Baroque architecture in Poland. 197 faces of the devil are characteristic for the palace. They are mascarons placed above the palace windows, and what is interesting, each of them is different. The Palace houses the Tourist Information Office where you can get information about Żagań and make an appointment for a guided tour of the town. Not far away, in the Poagustian Monastery Complex – recognized as a Monument of History, there is a historic church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a former monastery library with an impressive book collection and a collection of globes, as well as a post monastery convict and a granary. In Żagań there is the Chapel of the Holy Sepulchre, which is a faithful copy of the Chapel of the Holy Sepulchre of Christ in Jerusalem. There are only two such chapels in Europe, in German Goerlitz and in Żagań.
