We do not have many monuments of this class in Poland, Romanesque art as a medicine. Value, watch and delight!

Church of the Holy Trinity and the Blessed Virgin Mary in Strzelno. He belonged to the Norbertine abbey. The construction of the church from granite cubes began in the 12th century and was not completed until the mid-13th century. In 1216 his solemn consecration took place. A historical monument from 2018. TV

Miejsce polecane do zobaczenia. Dla pasjonatów historii i nie tylko. Mona tu poczuć magię dawnych czasów.

Baroque front. And the side walls have retained the Romanesque and Gothic elements. There are many antique elements in the interior. And the famous Romanesque columns. The monument is underestimated

Château d'Olhain

The Château d'Olhain is probably the most famous castle of the Artois region. It is located in the middle of a lake which reflects its picturesque towers and curtain walls. It was also a major stronghold for the Artois in medieval times and testimony to the power of the Olhain family, first mentioned from the 12th century.

The existence of the castle was known early in the 13th century, but the present construction is largely the work of Jean de Nielles, who married Marie d’Olhain at the end of the 15th century.

The marriage of Alix Nielles to Jean de Berghes, Grand Veneur de France (master of hounds) to the King, meant the castle passed to this family, who kept it for more than 450 years. Once confiscated by Charles Quint, it suffered during the wars that ravaged the Artois. Besieged in 1641 by the French, it was partly demolished by the Spaniards in 1654, and finally blown-up and taken by the Dutch in 1710. Restored in 1830, it was abandoned after 1870, and sold by the last Prince of Berghes in 1900. There is also evidence that one of the castles occupants was related to Charles de Batz-Castelmore d'Artagnan, the person Alexandre Dumas based his Three Musketeers charictor d'Artagnan on.

During the World War I and World War II, the castle was requisitioned first by French troops, then Canadian and British soldiers. The current owner has restored the castle to its former glory.
