Koszewo – church of the Immaculate Conception

History

The church of the Immaculate Conception was created 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 field stones and bricks. It consists of a wide, aisleless corpus, three-side ended chancel and a square tower. Its walls are decorated with slender, pointed blendes. It is topped with terrace with a battlement, from where the brick, pyramid roof grows.
