Information

Poznań Fara (Polish: Fara Poznańska) or Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Mary Magdalene and Saint Stanislaus, is one of the most valuable monuments of Baroque art in Poland. It was built by the Jesuits. It is located at 11 Klasztorna Street, 350 meters from the Old Market Square. The interior of the church is very rich. On the sides of the nave there are 16 huge columns made of artificial marble. On the vault of the nave in each bay there are three scenes from the life of St. Stanisław Bishop by Karol Dankwart from Nysa. The main altar, designed by Pompeo Ferrari, in its central part contains the painting "Resurrection of Piotrowin by St. Stanislaus the Bishop" painted by Szymon Czechowicz. Side altars are modeled on the altars from the church of St. Ignatius in Rome. Inside there are also baroque portraits and epitaphs, and altars dedicated to St. Tadeusz Juda and St. Pius X. Under the church there are huge cellars and crypts where monks and benefactors and even parishioners were buried. The organ is the most valuable element of the interior of the temple. They were built in 1876 by one of the best organ builders of that time, Friedrich Ladegast from Weißenfels. Every Saturday (and in the summer season, every day from Monday to Saturday), at 12:15, organ concerts with the participation of outstanding performers take place. After the concerts, visitors can visit the underground of the church. Additionally, in the summer season, on Thursday evenings, Old Town Organ Concerts are held.
