Photographer's Note

Village Sosnica near Wroclaw. In Sosnica is a small, valuable Gothic church of the Holy Cross, dated to the 13th century. In 1776 there were built the Holy Stairs, a replica of the Scala Santa in front of the Lateran Basilica of St. John. According to the Catholic tradition Jesus Christ stepped on the stairs on his way to trial.
The faithful in Sosnica come to them on their knees only during festive celebrations on Good Friday.
Unfortunately I could not take photos of the stairs, the church was closed.
