Necpaly – St Ladislaus church

History

Church of St. Ladislaus was built in the early gothic style in the second half of the 13th century. Around 1320, the sacristy was put at the chancel from the north. In the fifteenth century, the interior of the church was decorated with gothic frescoes. At the end of the 16th century the nave received a new vault which was lower than the original gothic walls, so some of the frescoes were in the attic. The church served local evangelicals who used the temple until 1709. Probably in the eighteenth century, they added a wooden porch to the tower. The renovation of the church took place at the end of the 19th century and once again in the years 1986-1988.

Architecture

The church is an early gothic structure, one nave with a square chancel, a sacristy on the north side and a tower erected on the western side. Of the gothic elements, in addition to the raw construction, rib vaults have been preserved in the presbytery and sacristy, and windows in the nave, presbytery and tower. Fragments of frescoes from the 15th century are preserved in the interior.
