Neo-Gothic and sacred tradition

Church of St. Lawrence and Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Trzciana

The current temple is the third built on this site since the parish's establishment in 1415. This relatively new building was erected at the end of the 19th century, designed in the then-fashionable Neo-Gothic style. Its soaring nature is especially evident in the facade – the main entrance is dominated by a tower topped with a pointed spire and four pinnacles. Narrow and tall windows punctuate the building, with a stained-glass rose window positioned halfway up the tower. Above the main nave is a bellcote with a spire similar to the main tower. The presbytery is polygonally enclosed, and the exterior walls have numerous buttresses. Inside, the wooden altar is Gothic in style, with a Passion group at the top, six statues on steps, and an image of the patron saint in the centre. Notable are the colourful frescoes on the vaults, the extensive organ, and the light effects achieved by the stained-glass windows.
