Koszewo – church of the Immaculate Conception

History

   The church of the Immaculate Conception was built in the second half of the fifteenth century. The first was the chancel, and at the beginning of the sixteenth century, the nave and tower were built. At the beginning of the 18th century, the chapel of the Oesterlings family was added to the south side of the temple, which was used as a family crypt. During the Reformation it was taken over by Protestants. In the nineteenth century it was renovated, then again in the 70s of the twentieth century.

Architecture

   The church was built of erratic stones and bricks. It consists of a wide, single nave, a three-side ended chancel on the eastern side and a square tower on the west side. Its walls are decorated with slender, pointed-arched blendes. It is topped with decorative battlements on the terrace, from which a brick pyramid grows.
