Chotków – church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

History

The gothic parish church dedicated to the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Chotków dates back to the second half of the 13th century. It was repeatedly expanded and rebuilt. In the fifteenth century, the chancel was enlarged, and in the 16th century a tower was built.

Architecture

It is a simple, single-nave building made of stone and brick, covered with a rib and net vault, and a gable roof outside. The raw architecture is broken with a portal from the 13th century in the southern wall and a tower covered with a hip roof. The interior is distinguished by an altar made in the 16th century by the Master of Gościszowice, a stone baptismal font from the end of the 16th century, as well as gravestones from the gothic and renaissance period.

Current state

Unfortunately, currently, due to the poor technical condition of the church and the threat of collapse, it is not possible to explore its interior. Work is carried out to save this valuable monument.
