Kremnické Bane – St John’s church

History

In the second half of the 13th century, the church was built by Benedictines, who settled on the Johannisberg mountain above the Kremnica. The main reconstruction to enlarge the temple, took place in the fifteenth or sixteenth century. The comprehensive building restaurant began in 1989 and finished in 2007.

Architecture

The original building was a early romanesque rotunda with internal blind arcades. After the reconstruction, a main nave ended with a three-level tower, was added to the partially demolished rotunda. In this way, the rotunda became the chancel of the gothic church.
