Nová Baňa – St Elisabeth’s Church

History

The church was built at the end of the 14th century by Henzmanus Izenrinkel at the hospital for the elderly and disabled miners. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the building experienced many disasters, for some time it even served as a mosque for the Turks who conquered the town. Also during the Reformation it changed owners several times. Catholics finally regained it only in 1706. In 1893, the building was renovated.

Architecture

The church was created as a simple single-nave building with a polygonal chancel and a southern annex. On the west side there is a gothic portal, a four-leaf rosette and the shield of the founder Henzman Izenrinkel. Inside there are preserved rib vaults.
