Przecław | Przecław |
A town located 16 kilometres away from Mielec, along the left bank of the Wisłoka river. Its historical landmarks include the main square, and streets starting at its corners, as well as brick houses from the late 19th/early 20th century.

The most interesting landmark here is a beautiful Renaissance castle, situated on a hill (on both sides surrounded with a deep ravine with the Słowik stream flowing at the bottom) in the valley of the Wisłoka river. The former aristocratic abode is located within a lovely 17th century English style landscape park, covering an area of 10 hectares.  You can still see here avenues of lime trees, an outline of an artificial lake and some ancient trees. The park is open to all who want to take a stroll, and visitors can take a guided tour inside the castle.

The castle today holds a restaurant and in the annex building there are beautifully appointed apartments.

A notable feature is the chapel of good fortune, with a painting of Our Lady of Częstochowa; it was believed that touching her brought happy life to everyone and good marriage to maidens.
