Solniki – St Anna’s Church

History

St Anna’s church dates back to the early 13th century, making it one of the oldest churches in the region. It originally had the call of St. Martin. In the 15th century it was rebuilt in gothic style. A chapel was added to the north façade and a massive tower was added to the west. The next reconstruction took place in the 16th century, when the presbytery was vaulted and the church was surrounded by a stone wall. The porch was added to the main entrance in the 18th century.

Architecture

The original, late romanesque church consisted only of a rectangular chancel, to which probably the same width nave was added in the 13th century. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the St. Anna chapel was added to the nave from the north, and to the chancel sacristy was added. From the west, the tower was strengthen with steep buttresses. The chancel, chapel and the nave received net vaults.
