Medieval church

The history of the Church of Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary dates back to the 13th century. Despite numerous fires the church was rebuilt several times – therefore its architecture combines elements of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. The church’s inside is from the latter period. This beautiful church is home to the yearly Henrykowski Organ and Chamber Music Festival, taking place in August.
