Legnica – The Lubiąż Abbot House, today The Museum of Copper

The Lubiąż Abbot House is a former manor house (curia) of the abbots from the Cistercian monastery in Lubiąż. It is a Baroque-style palace erected in the 18th century in place of a medieval construction. It was founded by an abbot of Lubiąż, Ludwik Bauch, which is confirmed by, among other, the monogram LAL (Ludovicus Abbas Lubensis) placed in the cartouche above the entrance. The front elevation has a rich baroque appearance. Above the portal there is a stone balcony decorated with sculptures of St. Hedwig and St. John the Baptist. After the secularization of the monastery (1810) the structure served as a judiciary building, then it was turned into a residential estate.

Today it houses the Museum of Copper. One can see a permanent exhibition Legnica. In ictu oculi (Legnica. In next to no time) which is about the history of the town. Near the Abbot House there is a lapidarium – a place where relics of monumental architecture and sculptures (from the 14th to the 19th centuries) are collected, which are remnants of the old buildings of Legnica. This outdoor exhibition is housed in the museum garden, at the junction of Powstańców and Rycerska streets.
