Opole – St Alexius Church

History

The church was built together with the nearby hospital site in 1421 from the foundation of the prince bishop Jan Kropidło. In 1691, the gothic temple was transformed, giving it a baroque décor. In 1739 the hospital was completely burned. It was rebuilt in a modified form in 1865-1866.

Architecture

The chapel is founded on a rectangular plan with a three-side ended chancel. The churche’s block, reinforced with buttresses, is covered with a gable roof, bend over the chancel. Gothic windows have been changed from pointed to semicircular in the nineteenth century.
