Tarnów, Church of the Holy Trinity on Terlikówka

Tarnów, Church of the Holy Trinity on Terlikówka

The exact date of construction of the church on Terlikówka is unknown, but we know it happened in the second half of the 16th century. In the 19th century, the church came close to being torn down, as it was in danger of collapsing. Luckily, it was saved, which is announced by the inscription on the rood beam: Król cum plebe pia labentes corrogit aedes (“Król [the then provost of the Tarnów cathedral] and the people of God lift the collapsing church”). Today, the shingle covered and boarded church looks stunning. Its charm is increased by the Baroque tower, crowned with a bulbous dome. Also beautiful is the modest, whitewashed interior with a flat ceiling decorated with a 20th century blue polychrome.
