Managed by the local parish church of St Michael the Archangelis the Sanctuary of the Blessed Aniela Salawa.
The relics of the Blessed lady, who came from Siepraw and was baptised in the local church, are kept here. The feasts in the Sanctuary areheld on 9th September (the commemoration of the Blessed Aniela) and on 11th November: the feast of St Martin, the former patron saint of the parish, whose small church is situated close to the new one, and on the last Sunday of September, on the feast of St Michael the Archangel. Although the parish already existed in the Middle Ages, the present church is a new construction with an interesting architectural design featuring a lofty triangular tower. The church of the Blessed Aniela Salawa in Siepraw received the status of Sanctuary of the Blessed fairly recently, that is in 2004, thanks to a special decree of Cardinal Franciszek Macharski.
