Tarnów, Church of the Assumption of Holy Mary

Tarnów, Church of the Assumption of Holy Mary

One of the oldest wooden churches in Małopolska, built in 1458. However, the massive, square-shaped tower was added much later (the beginning of the 20th century). The interior of this shapely, Gothic building is decorated with a delightful polychrome. The ceiling is covered with paintings from the interwar period, but the northern wall of the chancel still has fragments of earlier, 16th and 17th century flower themed polychromes. The main altar holds a 16th century image of the Virgin Mary with Infant Jesus, famous for its miraculous powers.
