Steblewo – church

History

The construction of the church in Steblewo started the Teutonic Knights in the 14th century. The first stage of construction included the chancel with the sacristy, in the second one a single-nave was erected, and in the third one a tower with a timber upper part was built. During the Reformation, the temple passed into the hands of the Protestants. It was destroyed by the Swedes in 1628, but was rebuilt with the help of the city of Gdańsk, which held the church patronage. In 1945 it was burned down, fell into ruin and was not rebuilt.
