Currently, the only noteworthy monument in Baldwinowice is the filial church of the p. Holy Trinity. The origins of the wooden and brick temple date back to the 15th century. Around 1592, a wooden nave was added to the gothic presbytery and sacristy. In the second half of the 17th century, the church was extended by a tower. The temple underwent numerous renovations and conversions, including in 1936. Inside the church, the late baroque main altar, a late Gothic triptych in the side altar, a wooden music choir from the 16th century, the epitaph of Ulbrycht von Herthel from 1626, polychrome interior from 1907 are preserved.

The church is somewhat off the beaten track, you can see that it is not very often visited by tourists, which is a pity because it is the next Perełka. It was open and it's good because it's what to show. The oldest part of the church are the sacristy and the presbytery, which are made of brick before 1414. The wooden nave was built in 1592. And the tower is seventeenth-century.

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
