Rąbiń – church of St Peter and Paul

History

The church was built at the turn of the fifteenth and sixteenth century, in place of an earlier XIII-century, romanesque temple, from the remains of which, drew its own building material. In the mid-sixteenth century, the facade was crowned with a high gothic-renaissance gable, and in 1648 two chapels were added to the church. The neo-gothic presbytery was added in 1904-1905.

Architecture

The late-mediaeval church consisted only of a rectangular nave, without an externally separated chancel. Most of the façade of the church was not plastered, but it was topped with gothic gable decoration. A similar decoration achieved the eastern gable. The outer walls are supported by medieval buttresses. From the oldest, romanesque church there is a fragment of the northern wall of the nave, made of granite blocks.
