The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lesniow Patroness of Families is located on the outskirts of Zarki. It belongs to the Pauline monastery complex which includes the Church of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the monastery, the bell tower, the pilgrim's house and the Chapel of Our Lady of the Angels. The church dates from 1610 and has a Gothic-Renaissance character. On its northern side there is a late Baroque monastery, and in the surroundings you can also find 15 rosary chapels and a bell tower. The most valuable property of the Sanctuary is the Gothic statue of the "smiling Mary", considered to be one of the most beautiful such statues in Poland and even in Europe. In 1967 the miraculous statue was crowned with papal crowns by the Primate of Poland Stefan Wyszyński, Bishop Stefan Bareł and the then Metropolitan of Krakow Karol Wojtyła. The statue was thus named Patroness of Families. The statue can be found in the main altar of the Sanctuary. The sanctuary is visited by crowds of the faithful who entrust their concerns to Our Lady of Lesniow.
