Mętno – church of Annunciation of the Virgin Mary

History

   The church of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary in Mętno was erected in the third quarter of the 13th century. After 1534, it was taken over by Evangelicals and renewed by them in subsequent centuries. In the mid-nineteenth century, a brick apse was added to the presbytery. After 1945, it became a Catholic church again.

Architecture

   The church was built of granite blocks of a regular shape. It is a single-nave structure with a chancel unusually longer than the nave, narrower and originally straight ended. From the west there is a tower, wider than the nave, and from the south – a four-sided sacristy. The interior is covered with a wooden beam ceiling.

Current state

   The layout and shape of the church have remained practically unaltered since the Middle Ages. Today, it still performs liturgical functions for the local Catholic community.
