Rokitno (Rokitten) is a village in the Skwierzyna (Schwerin) / Miedzyrzecz (Meseritz) area of the province of Lubuskie, Poland. It is the location of a truly splendid Baroque church (minor basilica) dedicated to ‘Our Lady of Rokitno’ dating back to the mid 18th century; and probably the most important sanctuary and shrine (Sanktuarium) in western Poland. A painting of the Virgin Mary dating back to the 16th century can be seen in the main altar of the church. Just outside of the village is a unique pilgrims trail linking a series of twenty eight outdoor shrines.
