St. Agatha's Church - Novigrad

St. Agatha's Church lies at the old city cemetery. With its trefoil apse, it is an example of Romanesque sacral architecture. Its construction with three naves, a saddle roof and a specific sanctuary that extends through the choir of the central apse, make it especially interesting. The church is dated to the period between the 9th and the 13th century. In addition to Carolingian influences, it also bears features typical of the regional sacral architecture of the Middle Ages. Its interior harbours two Late Baroque sculptures of local origin (light-bearing angels) and an altar depiction of St. Agatha.
The church was restored and conserved in 1993 - 1995.
