The ruins of the monastery of the Cartesians.
In Byaroza was built one of the largest and richest monasteries throughout the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1648 by the chancellor of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania Leu Sapieha. The monastery with garden and pond was surrounded by a stone wall with towers and a moat. Totaly in the church were buried eight generations of Sapieha.
However, for the active participation of the monks-Cartesians in the rebellion in 1863 the building was dismantled and the bricks used for the construction of barracks.
Till today only the southern and western part of the monastery survived - the remains of the bell tower, part of the wall of one of the corner towers, the pomfret, the hospital building.
