Orzechowo – church of St Mary Magdalene

History

   The church of St Mary Magdalene dates from the fourteenth century. In the years 1616 – 1773, the village was owned by the City Council of Toruń, which rebuilt the temple after a partial destruction in 1656, made by the Swedes.

Architecture

   It is a one-nave church, built of stone and bricks, from which gables were built. A narrower chancel with a three-sided closure adjoins the rectangular nave from the east. A sacristy is located on the northern side. In the western wall of the nave there is an pointed entrance portal. Inside, there is a granite stoup from the time of building the temple.
