21 Kanonicza St., Cracow (Krakow), Poland

Ulica Kanonicza is named after the canons of the Cracow Chapterhouse, who once had their houses here. Most of the houses were established in the Middle Ages, but in the course of later rebuilding they were embellished with Renaissance, Baroque, and Neoclassical elements.
