Radziki Duże – St Catherine’s Church


   St. Catherine’s church was built at the turn of the 14th / 15th century, in the village recorded for the first time in 1384, then owned by Andrzej, the castellan of Dobrzyń, of the Ogończyk coat of arms, which gave rise to the Radzikowski family. The first mentions of church come from 1448. In 1887, 1906 and 1955 it was renovated, and during the nineteenth century works, the gables of the eastern and western elevations were also rebuilt, giving them neo-Gothic features.


   The church is a modest, Gothic building made of brick in the Flemish bond on a stone foundation, situated on a small hill. The interior has a rectangular plan and is covered with a flat timber ceiling. A sacristy was added to the north, and a porch to the south. The gables crowning the shorter walls of the building were heavily rebuilt in the 19th century. The outer walls were clasped in the corners with buttresses with one step. The window openings were pointed, as well as the western and southern entrance portal.
