Entrance To The Convent

Warsaw, Poland

The convent is not open to visitors, though.
But when the old wooden gate opens, we can travel back in time, walking the cobblestone paved alley.
The Convent belongs to Sisters of Charity (Szarytki in Polish), which are members of the Congregation of St. Vincent de Paul, a female Catholic religious order founded in France in 1633.
The first three sisters set out from Paris in 1652 and arrived in Warsaw. >
