Źródła – church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

History

Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross is a late-romanesque temple established in the years 1220 – 1230. In the 17th century, a porch was added and surrounded by a low stone wall, in which the arrowslits and four corner, low towers were integrated. In the eighteenth century it was rebuilt.

Architecture

The building consists of a aisleless, rectangular nave and a smaller and narrower chancel originally ended with an apse. The chancel was erected on a square plan. The windows of the nave were closed at the top ogival arches, and the windows in the presbytery were crowned semicircularly. External façades were decorated with pilaster strips and an arcaded frieze around the presbytery. The interior of the chacel is covered with a rib vault, while the nave has a flat, timber ceiling.
