Jaszkowo – St Barbara’s Church

History

   Gothic church of Saint Barbara was erected before 1463 from the foundation of the Borkowie family from Gryżyna. In the first half of the sixteenth century, it was rebuilt and enlarged by the Ostrorog Lwowscy family. At the end of the 16th century, it was handed over to the Lutherans. It returned to the Catholics in 1622.
