We are most grateful to Dr. Joanna Szczesna of the Catholic University of Poland for the following comments:
There are several Krzyzanowice villages throughout Poland. Ours appears to be located in Swietokrzyskie wojewodztwo, in the region known as "Little Poland"
The original buildings of this house - both church and cloister - were rebuilt, the church in classic style. Only the church survives.
