Monastery of Camaldolese in Bieniszew

(Monastery of Camaldolese in Bieniszew)
phone 63 241 15 00
62-530 Kazimierz Biskupi

In the middle of forests around Kazimierz, 8 km northwest of Konin is located one of two Camaldolese monasteries, functioning to this day in Poland (at the turn of the sixteenth / seventeenth century, in Poland existed seven of them). Situated on a top of the "Owl Mountain" (“Sowia góra”) the bieniszewska hermitage (1760-1781) is therefore really unique. Due to the strict religious rule only men may enter the grounds of the monastery (women can visit the monastery during the Sundays’ mass from 10:00 am to 11:30 am or during the annual great indulgence, September 8).
