Medieval echo amidst modernity - secrets of Strzyżów's Market

Market Square in Strzyżów

The rectangular market square in Strzyżów, with ribbed streets emanating from it to all points of the compass, is a remnant of the late medieval town location in the 14th century. The urban layout has not changed much, evidenced by Podwale Street running around the no longer existing town walls, however, the architecture has changed. Currently, these are one or two-storey tenements, mainly former Jewish residences, among which the oldest is the bailiff's house from 1600 (28 Rynek Street). Currently, the market square does not serve a commercial role, apart from a section of buildings in the frontage, and has become a representative place, with monuments and a clearly marked outline on the square of the town hall location, which burned down at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries.
