It takes you from the Kraków-Częstochowa Plateau, the Miechów Plateau and the Proszowice Plateau to the town of Iwanowice, where it is worth visiting the Church of the Holy Trinity dating from the 18th century, located along the Wooden Architecture Route. Inside, you can admire, among other things, apparent vaults and three ancient Gothic sculptures, including one of Saint Christopher dating back to the end of the 15th century and from the workshop of an important sculptor from Nuremberg, Wit Stwosz.
