Baroque Church in Gasawa

On the way back from Biskupin we stopped in the village of Gasawa to visit a wooden baroque St. Nicolas Church. The church was built in 1625 and it hosts a unique collection of multi-layered mural paintings, the most recent of which comes from 1807.

Unfortunately we only managed to see the church from the outside. To see its collection of murals one needs to ask a local priest to open it for you. We did manage to find a priest, but he was in a hurry to get somewhere so he couldn't have opened the church for us. He said that the next time we are in the area, we should give him a call a day or so in advance and make an appointment with him.
