Bartoszyce Church

Bartoszyce, Poland

The origin of Bartoszyce Church is unknown. It was probably build on place of the castle chapel, of which we have some information from 1404, destroyed together with the castle half a century later by the inhabitants of Bartoszyce. The second medieval church in Bartoszyce, at Nowowiejskiego Street, is a simple, monolayer structure following a rectangle plan. Probably it originates from the XV century, although there are some assumptions that it could have been build already in the period of first city location. The bell tower has been added to the facade in the 19th century. The altar and pulpit supported by an angel are an example of Baroque carving of the first quarter of 18th century.

To nie jest kościół wybudowany w starym stylu , ale i tak czuć w zniosłą atmosferę

Kościół sam w sobie jest ładny w środku. Ale na zewnatrz każdy widzi...od lat zbierane są pieniądze od mieszkańców a prace idą powolnie. Pewnie dlatego by móc zbierać do samego końca. Szkoda że msze dla dzieci nie są fajne A kiedyś byly

Sirmione Castle

Sirmione castle was built near the end of the 12th century as part of a defensive network surrounding Verona. The castle was maintained and extended first as part of the Veronese protection against their rivals in Milan and later under the control of the Venetian inland empire. The massive fortress is totally surrounded by water and has an inner porch which houses a Roman and Medieval lapidary. From the drawbridge, a staircase leads to the walkways above the walls, providing a marvellous view of the harbour that once sheltered the Scaliger fleet. The doors were fitted with a variety of locking systems, including a drawbridge for horses, carriages and pedestrians, a metal grate and, more recently, double hinged doors. Venice conquered Sirmione in 1405, immediately adopting provisions to render the fortress even more secure, fortifying its outer walls and widening the harbour.

Thanks to its strategical geographical location as a border outpost, Sirmione became a crucial defence and control garrison for the ruling nobles, retaining this function until the 16th century, when its role was taken up by Peschiera del Garda.
