Witkowo Drugie – church of Our Lady

History

   The church in Witkowo Drugie was built in the 15th century or at the beginning of the 16th century. In the early modern period, probably in the 18th century, it was renovated and modernized.

Architecture

   The church was built of erratic stones and bricks used in the eastern gable and in the tower. It received the form of an aisleless structure, built on a rectangular plan with a four-sided tower added to the nave from the west, as a typical example of rural architecture in the areas of Western Pomerania in the late Middle Ages. Despite the simple layout, the eastern gable was given a very decorative form, divided into pyramidal, pointed, bipartite blendes, in the upper part filled with round panels. The upper parts of the tower façade were also decorated with longitudinal belndes. The interior of the nave was covered with a wooden flat ceiling.
