Przeworsk is a historic city that used to be one of the most important centers of Przemyśl. There is a unique in the country Chapel of the Holy Sepulcher, located in the former monastery complex of the Holy Sepulcher.
The city was founded in the Middle Ages and developed until the 17th century as a center of crafts and trade. Due to its importance and location near trade routes, it quickly grew rich and expanded. After the seat of noble courts was located here, it became the second administrative center of the region after Przemyśl.
After the period of splendor for over two centuries, Przeworsk fell into decline. It was reborn in the nineteenth century thanks to the Lubomirski family, who established a sugar factory here and arranged for the construction of a railway junction. A memento of the Lubomirski government in Przeworsk is the local palace and park complex.
The most important monument of the city is the fortified monastery of the Holy Sepulcher founded in the mid-15th century by Rafał Tarnowski. On its territory there is the Basilica of the Holy Spirit, one of the most important Gothic buildings in the Podkarpacie region. At the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries, next to the basilica, the Chapel of the Holy Sepulcher was erected with a replica of the Holy Sepulcher from Jerusalem.
There is also a fortified Bernardine church and monastery with the church of St. Barbara and the eighteenth-century baroque monastery of Charity. On the outskirts of the city there is a 17th-century larch manor house, which is part of a small open-air museum Pastewnik. A big attraction of Przeworsk is the Przeworsk narrow-gauge railway "Pogórzanin" which runs in the season on the route to Dynów. It was built at the beginning of the 20th century and was initially used to operate the local sugar factory. Currently, it serves tourist purposes.
