Lubawa – St Anna’s Church

History

The church was built around 1330. In later years, it was destroyed and rebuilt several times, including after the fires of 1533 and 1545. Larger repairs were also carried out in 1612 and 1778. In 1581, the chapel of St. Barbara was added to the temple from the south, funded by Magdalena Mortęska. In 1600, the sacristy was added and the western gable was rebuilt.
