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.

Roman Walls of Lugo

Roman Walls of Lugo are an exceptional architectural, archaeological and constructive legacy of Roman engineering, dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The Walls are built of internal and external stone facings of slate with some granite, with a core filling of a conglomerate of slate slabs and worked stone pieces from Roman buildings, interlocked with lime mortar.

Their total length of 2117 m in the shape of an oblong rectangle occupies an area of 1.68 ha. Their height varies between 8 and 10 m, with a width of 4.2 m, reaching 7 m in some specific points. The walls still contain 85 external towers, 10 gates (five of which are original and five that were opened in modern times), four staircases and two ramps providing access to the walkway along the top of the walls, one of which is internal and the other external. Each tower contained access stairs leading from the intervallum to the wall walk of town wall, of which a total of 21 have been discovered to date.

The defences of Lugo are the most complete and best preserved example of Roman military architecture in the Western Roman Empire.

Despite the renovation work carried out, the walls conserve their original layout and the construction features associated with their defensive purpose, with walls, battlements, towers, fortifications, both modern and original gates and stairways, and a moat.

Since they were built, the walls have defined the layout and growth of the city, which was declared a Historical-Artistic Ensemble in 1973, forming a part of it and becoming an emblematic structure that can be freely accessed to walk along. The local inhabitants and visitors alike have used them as an area for enjoyment and as a part of urban life for centuries.

The fortifications were added to UNESCO"s World Heritage List in late 2000 and are a popular tourist attraction.
