Description of contents:
Benedictines came to Cracow in 1044, they were invited by the Polish King Kazimierz Odnowiciel. They settled themselves by the Wawel Cathedral. Later in the seventies of XI century, Boleslaw Smialy founded for a part of the convent the monastery in Tyniec. There were established there: the Roman Style St. Peter and Paul’s Church, besides the monastery buildings, and all the mountain became armed with fortifications. Unfortunately, the end of that Tyniec’s exposition arrived simultaneously with the Mongols’ invasion in 1260- unfortunately everything disappeared in the fire. Later, Tyniec was rebuilt in the gothic style, and the consequent step was the Baroque’s reconstruction. Therefore almost nothing has preserved since the Roman Art’s period. Luckily, from the entrance portals there preserved the XI century Roman Style wall from the beaten Stones measuring 5 metres. We find here the traces of the bent transversely small windows, and first of all not too big, but not influenced portal dated on the second half of XI century.
