Gliwice – St Bartholomew’s Church

History

Church of St. Bartholomew was created in the fifteenth century, perhaps on the site of an earlier, wooden temple. It was located on a small hill, on one of the main communication and merchant routes. In 1592, it was slightly rebuilt, major changes occurred then only in the interior design. In the second half of the seventeenth century, a nave and a tower were added, and the entire building was renovated in 1944.

Architecture

The oldest, gothic part is a rectangular chancel and a sacristy adjacent to it from the north. Nave and tower were created after 1656. The gable roofs were covered with shingles. Inside, there are surviving groin-barrel vaults and polychromes probably from the fifteenth century.
