Gosprzydowa, St. Ursula’s Church

Gosprzydowa, St. Ursula’s Church

It’s hard to deny the charm of the larch log church in Gosprzydowa. Dating from the end of the 17th century, it is one of the few examples of wooden Baroque churches. It is covered by a high, shingle-covered roof. Take some time to visit to step inside and see the 19th century polychrome (and a 20th century one in the chapel). The mainly Baroque furnishings include a Gothic, stone baptismal font (15th century), while the main altar features a marvellous image of the Virgin Mary with Infant Jesus, locally known as the Comforter of the Dying.
