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 well worked granite blocks of a regular shape. It is a aisleless building with a chancel longer than the nave and originally straight ended. From the west a wider tower is added, and from the south a sacristy. The interior is covered by a wooden beam ceiling. The layout and shape of the church have remained practically unaltered since the Middle Ages.
