The Jasna Góra Monastery in Czestochowa, Poland, is a famous Polish shrine to the Virgin Mary and one of the country's places of pilgrimage.

The image of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa, also known as Our Lady of Czestochowa, to which miraculous powers are attributed, is one of Jasna Góra's most precious treasures. Among the monastery's other treasures and artifacts of interest is the medal from the 1983 Nobel Peace Prize received by Lech Walesa, the former Polish president and trade-union organizer. The site is one of Poland's official national Historic Monuments and is tracked by the National Heritage Board of Poland.
