In my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful wooden churches in Opole Silesia. I definitely recommend it!

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.

Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle

Easter Aquhorthies stone circle, located near Inverurie, is one of the best-preserved examples of a recumbent stone circle, and one of the few that still have their full complement of stones. It consists of a ring of nine stones, eight of which are grey granite and one red jasper. Two more grey granite stones flank a recumbent of red granite flecked with crystals and lines of quartz. The circle is particularly notable for its builders' use of polychromy in the stones, with the reddish ones situated on the SSW side and the grey ones opposite.

The placename Aquhorthies derives from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning 'field of prayer', and may indicate a 'long continuity of sanctity' between the Stone or Bronze Age circle builders and their much later Gaelic successors millennia later. The circle's surroundings were landscaped in the late 19th century, and it sits within a small fenced and walled enclosure. A stone dyke, known as a roundel, was built around the circle some time between 1847 and 1866–7.
