The Church of St Mary Magdalene and Corpus Christi in Koziegłowy


The church of Saint Mary Magdalene and Corpus Christi in Koziegłowy was built in the fifteenth century. It is located on a promontory at the confluence of the rivers of Sarni Stok and Boży Stok. It was then when the brick presbytery was erected, which was decorated with unusual Gothic wall paintings depicting the scenes of Passion. In later times, a nave and a defensive tower were added. Inside you will find many interesting monuments, mostly in the Baroque style.

From those times, an urban layout including a market square and seven streets going out of it have been preserved. The partly Gothic parish church of Saint Mary Magdalene is worth seeing. It is located east of the market square. It stands next to the townhouse from the nineteenth century.
