Wilkowo Polskie – St Hedwig’s church

History

The church was founded around 1540 from the foundations of the then owner of the Wilkowo, Piotr Ossowski. Earlier, in the second half of the 15th century, beside the temple, a gothic defensive tower was erected, now used as a bell tower. In the early 18th century the temple was surrounded by a wall, and in 1800 the porch was rebuilt.

Architecture

The church is preserved in its original, gothic form. The temple is a hall building, from the east is closed three-sided, with a sacristy and a treasury on the north side and a porch from the south. The interior covers the stellar vault. Below there are figural polychromes from the middle of the sixteenth century.
