Čelovce – church


   The church was built in the 13th century. During the Reformation very early in the mid-sixteenth century, it came into the possession of Protestants. The building was renovated in 1788, 1826, 1910 and restored in 1932 – 1933, and more recently in 2000-2004.


   The church was built on a fairly gentle slope of the hill, drooping to the west and north-west. It received the form of a single-nave structure, ended in the east with a square chancel and with buttresses in the corners. The entrance to the interior led through the romanesque portal with a semicircular closure on the south side, and the light fell through small, narrow windows in the southern facades of the nave and chancel, and the eastern wall of the choir. Inside there is a gothic stone pastophory decorated with three pinnacles and a stone baptismal font from the 14th century.
