Biblical Gardens

Muszyna, Kościelna Street, by the Church of St Joseph the Betrothed to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Entrance free of charge. Open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. till 8 p.m., on Sundays from 9 a.m. till 10 p.m. Mondays closed. It is possible to have a guided tour (duration ca. 45 min.) at full hours.

The Biblical Gardens are a small park composed in 2013 into its historical surrounding: a 1729 Baroque parish church, a brick belfry and wall, a chapel with a sculpture (17th century), the old parish presbytery (19th century). The park (ca. 1 hectare of surface) has plants known from the Bible or growing in the Holy Land: palms, olive trees, papyrus, vine, but also wheat, thistle and roses. The gardens are designed to be an oecumenical space meant not only for relaxing among plants, but also for meditation and prayer. They were designed following the convention of three temples: one of Jerusalem, one St Joseph the Betrothed to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and one of the messianic times. There are five gardens, one each dedicated to the history of salvation, biblical landscapes, teachings of the prophets, Biblical Garden for Children, and The Garden of Lovers. The plants, quotes and objects in the gardens all refer to the Bible. For example, in the Garden of Lovers you will find quotes about love, marriage and children. Some of the objects are: a small pond with a basket representing the one in which Moses was put as a baby and into a river, the burning bush, Mount Tabor, the Cenacle, the Holy Sepulchre, etc.
