The beginning of the cult of Our Lady of Szczyrk dates back to 1894, when it was a place of wonderful revelations. In this moment started the construction of the first wooden chapel. Over time, due to the numerous pilgrims coming here, there was a need to build a new, larger church. Construction of a stone church was begun in 1912 and completed after the First World War.
