MARKET SQUARE AND OTHER BUILDINGS OF LIPNICA MUROWANA -
Vast rectangular square is a centre of Lipnica Murowana in Lesser Poland and together with the st.Leonard's -wood log construction church is considered to be the most precious historic architecture.
The houses located around the public square mostly face the square with its gable walls and arcaded galeries supported by the woden columns.The characteristic styl of the Lipnica Murowana houses is very similar to those in New Wisnicz
Unfortunately only few of them were kept untouched without any modifications.
Some of the hosues are also quite new but kept the character of the traditional building in the area.
In the middle of the square there is a sculpture of st.Simon founded in 1913, placed on the column and plinth, looking down on his beloved land.
