Tyniec nad Ślęzą – St Michael’s Church

History

The original church was erected around 1250. At the end of the fifteenth century, a nave, a sacristy and a church tower were added. The temple was rebuilt twice: 1666 and 1715 and restored in the 19th century.

Architecture

The church is orientated, bricked in monk and flemish (gothic) bond. It consists of a one-nave corpus with an elongated chancel, ending with a pentagonal apse and a tower added in the fifteenth century from the west. From the south at the end of the Middle Ages, the sacristy was added to the presbytery. The interior of all the elements of the church was covered with flat, wooden ceilings, but in the presbytery there are six romanesque corner columns with heads decorated with floral motifs.
