Church of Saint John the Baptist

Modra | > Church of Saint John the Baptist

The Church of Saint John the Baptist is the oldest sacral monument in the town, built in the 13th century. It is situated in the south-eastern section of town, right near the entrance to the fenced cemetery grounds.
It is an early Gothic, one-nave church. The interior was decorated with frescoes, some of which can be seen today since the church underwent an extensive renovation. It was reconstructed several times – for instance, the western wall of the nave was torn down and the space was extended to the west. A tower was added, the perimeter walls were raised by 1.5 metres, and the gothic windows were bricked over.
The church is in the care of the local Roman Catholic Church parish. It is used to celebrate the Birth of Saint John the Baptist and on certain other occasions.
