Small chapel on the road

28th August 2016

I love walking and cycling. I have cycled about 500 km this holiday. I did it in one month. As an allergic person it is a great achievement. Now I must walk because in the big city which is not too easy but the most important I have to work long hours so only at the weekends it is possible to exercise..

While taking a break I took some photos in the countryside.

In the past Polish farmers built a lot of small Roman - Catholic chapels on the roads so one of them I came across in August. It was built in the 19th century. Look at the photos.



It was open ..









Local residents take care of it..





Road ahead. me..




more photos shortly..

  1. The small local chapel is simple and nice. Local people in the town look after their chapel. It is as it should be.

  5. Bardzo piękna kapliczka. Jedna z wielu...
    W naszym kraju mamy dużo przydrożnych kapliczek. Wiele z nich to najcenniejsze zabytki okolic, w których stoją. Rzeźbione w drewnie, murowane. To nasz wielki SKARB. Przydrożne kapliczki - "rozsiane w krajobrazie modlitwy ludu polskiego."
    Pozdrawiam:)
