Siecieborzyce – church of Our Lady

History

The church in Siecieborzyce was probably founded in the second half of the 13th century. It was mentioned for the first time in historical sources in 1273. In 1508, it was enlarged with a porch, sacristy and tower. Also a flat ceiling above the nave was replaced with  brick vaults. Probably at the same time, the majority of window openings were enlarged and the façades were plastered. The church underwent reconstruction also in the baroque period, as evidenced by the crowning of the southern porch. In 1905, the church was regothisated, during which polychromes were made on the vaults.
