Pluskowęsy – St John the Baptist Church

History

   The oldest part of the gothic church is the presbytery built around 1311, while the nave part comes from the mid-fourteenth century. Large destruction of the church occurred during the Polish-Teutonic war in 1414. In the middle of the fifteenth century, the temple was renovated and decorated with polychrome, now plastered. In the years 1989 – 1991, the building was completely renovated.

Architecture

   The church is built on a rectangular plan on the foundations of worked stones. The walls are brick-built in gothic style. It is an aisleless construction without an externally separated chancel. On the west side of the building there is a massive, four-storey tower with facades decorated with large pointed niches.
