Miechocin – church of Maria Magdalena

History

The oldest part of the church of St. Mary Magdalene, that is the presbytery, comes from the fourteenth century, from the Machowscy family foundation, then owners of Miechocin. In the first half of the 18th century, thanks to the generosity of the Tarnowski family, the church was expanded by adding the floor of the sacristy. The next stage of construction works at the church was carried out in the years 1843 – 1845, when the nave was extended by two more spans. At the beginning of the 1930s, on the north side, a semicircular chapel was added.

Architecture

The original medieval church consisted of a two-span chancel with a rib vault and a nearly square, two-span nave covered with a flat wooden ceiling and a one-storey sacristy. During the later extension of the nave, a gothic wall bond and a demolition bricks were used, thanks to which the extended part became similar to the gothic part. From the medieval period, they have been preserved in the church 14th-century, forged iron door to the sacristy, a stone baptismal font from 1484, and the monumental wall polychromes from the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries preserved on the walls and vaults of the chancel.
