The long route that leads to the sacral historical places located in the municipalities belonging to Gromnik LAG should rather be divided into 3 or 4 parts and a whole day should be devoted to each part to have enough time for calm sightseeing. What else, in case of visiting churches we often see the neighboringpalaces and penitential crosses standing by the church gates. The churches that prevail on the line date back to the Middle Ages. There are also lots of baroque buildings. In this part of route the most interesting is the Roman rotunda of St. Gotard in Strzelin as well as the Roman temple in Biały Kościół.

The second part of the route of churches requires from bikers to have the best condition because it crosses the highest part of Wzgórza Strzelińskie range and additionally the long sections lead on field roads. Due to this fact we avoid driving on busty highways as these sections lead on asphaltic roads which are mostly byways with less intensive traffic.
