Lubiąż




Lubiąż Abbey or Leubus Abbey is a former (secularized in 1810) Cistercian monastery in Lubiąż, in Lower Silesia, Poland. The abbey, established in 1175, is one of the largest Christian architectural complexes in the world:

The area of the roofs is about 25,000 square meters. The façade, with a length of 223 m (732 ft), is the longest in Europe after that of El Escorial in Spain.There are over 600 windows.

Currently the abbey is empty, without major activities. There is a foundation that tries to restore the abbey and convert it to the secular conference center and hotel.

Anyone to invest and keep it for the sacred use???

I have no clue why they don't use this as a seminary.
