Saint Roch Bastion

The north-western bastion (the pentagonal corner element of the fortifications with protruding longer sides) was initially named after the Blessed Virgin Mary. Starting from the early eighteenth century, it was named after Saint Roch. It was erected in the years 1631-1636, under the guidance of the Kraków mason Jan Zymart. It was rebuilt in 1751. The reconstruction was funded by Michał Morsztyn, Castellan of Nowy Sącz. It is, therefore, also called the Morsztyn family bastion. During the renovation works conducted in 1992, the previous 17th-century bastion was found inside the structure, which protected the fortress against the siege during the “Swedish Deluge”. It was later covered with new walls.
