Żabów – St John’s Church

History

Church of St. John the Baptist was built in the mid of 16th century. It was founded by the von Plotz family on the site of an earlier temple. At the end of the 19th century, the monument was rebuilt, among others it gained a tower and sacristy.

Architecture

It is a rectangular building, without a separate choir. All the walls were made with glacial erratics. The bricks were used only in architectural details: window frames, blendes and the upper storey of the tower. The most decorative is the eastern façade, separated by a large, two-light, pointed window. The crests of the east gable are decorated with pinnacles. The north and south façades are separated with pointed windows. The interior is covered with a wooden, beamed ceiling.
