2 Przyrynek Street. The Visitation church.
The church was built in the year 1411 and is known to be one of the oldest churches in Warsaw. In the year 1581 a late-ghotic bell-tower was built onto it.
In the year 1939 the church was damaged by German bullets. During the Warsaw Uprising, i.e. in August 1944, the church was demolished by the artillery and German air force and then was burnt.
It was rebuilt between the years 1947-1952.

Outside the church one can find a plaque in memory of civilians murdered by Germans on August 29.

- commemorating the fallen soldiers, nurses and liaison women of platoon "Mieczyki" - battalion "Czata 49" and platoon "Niedźwiedzie" - battalion "Miotła" of the Home Army unit "Radosław";
- commemorating the fallen soldiers of the Ordnance Service "Leśnictwo" and the Home Army unit "Leśnik";
