A town house with a fascinating history stands on one of Kraków's oldest streets, near the Archdiocese Museum and Bishops' palace, the former home of Cardinal Karol Wojtyła. And within it an equally captivating restaurant, the Trattoria La Campana, teeming with the aromas of olives, Italian herbs and freshly picked flowers from the garden surrounding La Campana. The only one of its kind in Kraków's Old Town.
Magnificent, forged, Late-Gothic gates lead to the restaurant. Two beautiful rooms, steeped in wood, overlooking a romantic garden surrounded by ancient walls await guests right past the threshold. Then, an atmosphere of a mysterious, medieval Kraków awaits guests in another two rooms in the town house basement.
The historic building, home to La Campana, is known as the "House under the Three Crowns". This is the former meeting place for the Fraternity of Wawel Bell-Ringers, charged with the keep of the Royal Sigismund Bell. It was also the inspiration behind the trattoria's name – La Campana, which means bell in Italian.
As tradition has it, members of the Fraternity met here for much needed refreshment after working hard – swinging a thirteen ton colossus is no piece of cake
