Kościół św. Anny Nowy Targ
Nowy Targ, St. Anna’s Cemetery Church
The beginnings of the innovative St. Anna’s Church are quite mysterious and unknown. Folk legends claim it was built at the beginning of the 13th century (the inscription above the chancel says 1219, but there is no evidence that this is the year of the construction), but the second half of the 15th century is a much more realistic option.
The church, rising from a small, yet steep hill, has undergone a few alterations, but managed to maintain the harmony of its body. It looks very enchanting, on account of its tall, shingled roof and a younger, most probably 18th century tower crowned with a bulbous dome. The interior is decorated with paintings from 1880, while furnishings include items from different periods. The late Baroque main altar contains precious paintings from the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries.
