Visitationist Church, Warsaw

Visitationist Church, Warsaw

Visitationist Church or the Church of St. Joseph is situated on one of the main thoroughfares in Warsaw. This late-Baroque church in Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street features a predominantly Baroque interior with Rococo decorations. It was constructed between 1664 and 1761. One of the interesting features of the church is the boat shaped impressive pulpit.

Step into the church and you can find exquisite paintings and sculptures by Polish, French and Italian masters. You can also find the tabernacle donated in 1654 by Queen Marie Louise Gonzaga de Nevers. During services for schoolchildren, Fryderyk Chopin used to play on the church organ here.

As a part of the conservation work, the plaster put in place by Marconi was replaced by cement and painted. It was only in the year 2009 that Visitationist Church’s façade was restored to its original glory. Cement plaster was removed and replaced by the 18th century lime mortar and sand.

During this renovation, sculptures and all other parts of the façade were reconstructed to reflect the original work. The old baroque frameworks can still be found at the monastery. Using historical techniques, the glass panes were also reconstructed to exactly resemble what it was when the church was first constructed.
