Fortuna Cellar

Local name: Piwnica Pod Fortuną

The Under Fortune Cellar is ten exhibition halls located in the historic Lubomelski tenement at the Lublin Market Square. The attractions here are multimedia presentations and a collection of exhibits familiarizing with the city's history.

In the tenth hall of the former wine cellar, Renaissance murals have been preserved. The polychromies dated to the sixteenth century are ten paintings on secular themes placed both on the walls of the cellar, and on the eaves of the fireplace and the vault.

In the paintings, the antique motifs and the motifs referring to the Renaissance lifestyle and customs are the most present. Wall paintings were made at the initiative of one of the owners of the tenement Erazm Lubomelski.

At the end of the 18th century, the cellar was bricked up due to façade renovation and next mentions of the paintings appeared only in 1901. Before the Second World War, their renovation began. Further conservation works took place in 1960, 1982 and in 1998-99.

In other rooms you can see an arranged burgher room from the turn of the 16th / 17th century, a tribunal and executioner hall, an industrial hall, three religious-themed rooms, a street in Lublin, the center and the outskirts of the city.
