Hrušov – St Anne’s chapel

History

The chapel was built at the end of the fourteenth or early fifteenth century in the vineyards above the village in the place of an older sacred building. The repairs were carried out in the years 1522 and 1603. In 1739, the baroque reconstruction of the building took place. From this period comes a semicircular eastern apse. Another important renovation lasted at the turn of the 70’s and 80’s of the XX century, when research was carried out and medieval polychromes were discovered.

Architecture

The chapel is a small, gothic building erected on a rectangular plan. On its southern side there are tall, gothic, pointed windows embedded in a rather strange form of the egg. The nave has a rib vault.
