Myślibórz – chapel of St Gertrude

History

Chapel of St. Gertrude was built in the second half of fifteenth century. It stood at the former St. Gertrude hospital and at the hospital’s cemetery, located outside the town walls. In the 16th century it was taken over by the lutheran commune. At the beginning of the 20th century, after a thorough restoration, it was made available to the congregation. It also served as a funeral chapel. Currently, it houses the Art Education Center.

In the western wall there is an pointed portal with a profiled corrugated shaft. Inside the rib vaults are supported on brackets decorated with geometrical motifs and mascarons.
