Przeczno – church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

History

   The gothic parish church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross was erected at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. The date of completion of the building is 1315. The church was completely renovated at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries and in the second half of the 18th century.

Architecture

   The church was built as a rectangular structure orientated towards the side of the world, with a narrower, three-sides ended chancel on the east side and a fairly massive four-sided tower added from the west. A sacristy was located at the north wall of the chancel. Apart from it and the tower, the whole building was strengthened with buttresses, between which pointed ogival narrow windows were pierced. Inside the nave was covered with a wooden ceiling, while the presbytery was distinguished by a rib vault.
