Wielkie Oczy is a small township of about 800 residents. Before the war the town was in the Lviv voivodeship, after the war it had been first in the Rzeszów and then in Przemyśl voivodeships. Currently it is a village (since 1935) in the Podkarpackie voivodeship, lubaczowski powiat, near the Ukrainian border (about 2 kilometres away). Geographically Wielkie Oczy lies on Garb Jaworowski, which in turn is a part of the Tarnnogród Plateau.
According to local legend, the name of the village—Wielkie Oczy meaning "Big Eyes" in Polish—was derived from two lakes that no longer exist and that looked from a neighboring hill like two big eyes with the first houses of Wielkie Oczy situated between them.
