Łekno – church of St Peter and Paul

History

The church was built in the mid-sixteenth century from the foundation of Nikodem Łekiński, a castellan of Nakło.

Architecture

The temple is a three-nave, pseudohall structure, with a slightly lower and narrower, polygonaly ended chancel. At the presbytery from the north there is a sacristy, and from the south the former chapel of St. Józef, crowned with an early renaissance gable. To the south aisle adjoins the 16th-century porch, which is probably an unfinished tower. There are two pentagonal turrets at the facade. In the presbytery, naves and the former chapel, the original stellar vault has been preserved.
