CHRONOW - TIMBER FRAME CONSTRUCTION CHURCH IN LESSER POLAND
A parish church of Holy Spirit in Chronow, Lesser Poland.
It was built in XVII century in a baroque style, cladded with vertical timber boards and a pitched roof covered with a wood shingles .The most interesting architectural elements are the two sophisticated ( baroque style) towers on the top of the roof.
The church has been recently refreshed and has an interesting history, its external look was being changed in the past but the general structure stayed the same.See also links below were you can see how the church has been modified :
