Sarcophagus of Bolko I the Strict

The prince is depicted wearing a chainmail, on which he has a wapenrock slit on the side. In his hand he holds a shield and a double-edged sword in an ornate scabbard. Next to his head lies a helmet. At his feet is a lion, which can be variously interpreted as a symbol of power, immortality, courage or the devil whom the prince is crushing.

The mausoleum of the Świdnica branch of the Piast dynasty (1735-1747) adjoins the church building (Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary), and includes the tombs of Bolko I and Bolko II (14th century), created by joining two chapels.
