Łabędnik – church of Our Lady of Victory

History

The parish church in Łabędnik was built in the late 14th century in the gothic style. The patronage over it was held by the owners of urban goods. In the fifteenth century, a tower was added. In 1525, the Reformation was introduced and from then on the church served evangelicals until the end of the Second World War.

Architecture

The temple is an aisleless object, orientated, made of brick and field stone, with a tower on the west side, a burial chapel from the north and a porch on the south side. The chancel is not separated, and the tower is built into the church’s corpus. The decorative gables with plastered blendes are noteworthy. From the south and north the building is reinforced with buttresses. On the walls of the nave, paintings from the late 15th century were discovered with the figures of the apostles. Relics of the gothic altar, transformed in the 16th and 17th centuries, have also survived. In the main altar’s setting, bas-reliefs and figurines of the apostles from the beginning of the 15th century were used.
