Strzegom – St Hedwig’s Church


   The church was built in the early 14th century as a sanctuary for the Old Strzegom. It was mentioned in 1456 as a hospital chapel, and in 1819 as a cemetery chapel. It was rebuilt in the early 16th century.


   The church is orientated, aisleless, with a two-bay nave, with a narrower, three-side ended chancel on the eastern side, covered with a six-section vault. The square nave has a flat, wooden ceiling, but it may have been originally covered with a cross vault supported by a single pillar. The building is fully buttressed. On the north side, in the 16th century, a sacristy was added between two buttresses. Inside the presbytery there is a wall sacramentary, made of sandstone in the Gothic style in the second half of the 15th century.
