While visiting Gorlice it is impossible not to visit the ancestral seat of the city's founders - the Karwacjan Court, also known as the "Aryan church" or "lamus", which illustrates its former functions.
The ground floor of the building is a remnant of the defensive manor house built by Dersław II Karwacjan at the beginning of the 15th century. The manor house was almost completely destroyed during World War I and partially rebuilt in the 1970s. In 1982-92 it was restored on the basis of archival photographs. Today, the Karwacjan Manor House is the seat of the of the Karwacjan and Gładysz Family Manors Museum. The stone cellars house a stylish cafe, and on the upper floors - a large exhibition hall named after Father Bronisław Świeykowski - the mayor of Gorlice in the years 1914-1915 and a smaller one named after Professor Włodzimierz Kunz - the former rector of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, Honorary Citizen of Gorlice. In front of the building you can admire the monument to the founder of Gorlice - Dersław I Karwacjan, unveiled in 2005 on the 650th anniversary of the city's location.
