Today's Bernardine Monastery used to be a residence of The Bernardine Sisters until 1781. In 1550 Jan Amor Tarnowski, the owner of Tarnów, built a wooden monastery for them. Another one, built of brick, was founded in 1680. In the next century, a brick church was added, too. It was situated on a slope that was slightly higher than the monastery proper. The temple received Baroque architetonic features. It was a one-nave type of building. It was consecrated to St. Barbara. In years 1809 and 1815 both church and the monastery were partially destroyed by several fires. Since that time (throughout the entire 19th and the 20th century), they have been renovated and refurbished. Inside the Church of St. Barbara there is a gracious image of Jesus the Merciful and Our Lady of Sorrows (from the 1st half of the 16th century).
