Laskowo – church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

History

   The church in Laskowo was built in the second half of the 13th century. After 1534, Protestants took it over from the hands of Catholics. In 1680 it underwent renovation, and at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, a porch was separated in the western part of the church and a wooden tower was added.

Architecture

   The church was built of granite cubes as a typical example of rural sacral architecture in Pomerania in the Middle Ages. It was erected as an east-west orientated building, aisleless, without the externally separated chancel and tower, measuring 22.3 x 11.2 meters. In the western elevation, the original, pointed, stepped entrance portal was pierced. Inside the nave, covered with a beam ceiling, there is a granite baptismal font dating from the 13th / 14th century.
