The market square in Gorlice


The market square in Gorlice is a spacious, quadrilateral (about 90 x 95 m), terraced square, with an urban layout preserved from the time of the city's incorporation in the fourteenth century. There are many interesting places there, such as the town hall with a clock tower, which has become a permanent element of the landscape of this town, the monument „Ławeczka Łukasiewcza” – the inventor of the kerosene lamp, and the museum of the Gorlice Land. On the edge of the market square there is also the Church of Blessed Virgin Mary, and its western frontage are historic burgher houses. The corner tenement house of the Artwiński family – Rynek 6, located at Wąska Street, and the neighboring house at number 7, built in the 18th century, also attracts attention.
