Żarczyn – St Stanislaus Church

History

The church in Żarczyn was erected at the end of the 13th century. In the nineteenth century a tower was added to it. During World War II it was destroyed and rebuilt only in 1977-1979.

Architecture

The church was erected as a building on a rectangular plan with blocks of granite cubes arranged in regular layers. From the east you can see the ornament of the gable in the form of a circular and pointed blendes combination with a central, also round window opening. The main entrance to the temple is on the west side. Formerly there were three entry portals: the north one and two from the south, of which only one of the southern portals remained not wall-mounted.
