The house in Lipnica The house in Lipnica

Lipnica Murowana, situated near Bochnia in Małopolska province, is a place associated with the youth of St. Ursula – Julia Ledóchowska. Her father, Antoni Ledóchowski, after living in Austria for many years wanted to return to Poland. In 1883 he acquired a manor house in Lipnica Murowana and moved there with his wife Józefina and their children – Maria Teresa, Julia, Franciszka and Ernestyna. Julia spent there three years of her life. Then, in August 1886, she left Lipnica and entered the Ursuline Order in Cracow.

In Lipnica one may visit the house of the Ursuline Sisters with the relic room from the manor house of the Ledóchowski family, which reminds about the presence of the family there.
