Barzowice – St Francis Church

History

   The church of St. Francis in Barzowice was erected in the first half of the 15th century. In the mid-nineteenth century, it was restored in the neo-Gothic style.

Architecture

   The church was built of bricks and placed on a plinth made of erratic stones. It is a single-nave structure, aisleless, although due to the considerable width of the interior of the church and the small span of the arches, it can be assumed that it was originally planned as a three-aisle structure. On the west side there is a four-sided tower, slightly protruding above the aisle hip roof, and on the eastern side, a polygonal chancel, not distinguished externally from the nave. Regularly spaced window openings are topped with pointed arches, and the walls are buttressed.
