The convent of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, commonly known as the "Nazareth Sisters", is located in the lower part of Komańcza, at the exit towards Rzepedź. This beautiful building was built in 1931 in the Swiss-style as a spa guesthouse for the sisters who moved here permanently and look after the building to this day. Part of the convent functions now as a summer resort where many tourists come. Even Karol Wojtyła stayed here when he was still wandering around the Bieszczady Mountains as a priest. Komańcza is known for the fact that, from October 1955, the Primate of Poland, Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński, interned by the authorities of the People's Republic of Poland, stayed here for a year. It is here that he wrote the text of The Pledge of Jasna Góra. In the convent there is the Cardinal's Memorial Room, in which memorabilia related to his presence in this place have been collected.
In the convent of the Nazareth Sisters, many scenes were shot for the fictionalized documentary about primate Wyszyński, „Jako w niebie, tak i w Komańczy” (As In Heaven, So In Komańcza). The characteristic building is visible in several shots. The convent chapel was also filmed.
