On our first trip to the area we stopped at Lowicz for the second time that day on our way back from Leczyca. We hardly knew the town then but we pulled in when we saw a procession in front of what looked like an interesting old church. As it later turned out it was the Church of the Holy Spirit - the oldest brick church in Lowicz, founded in 1404. Its late-Gothic style is not immediately obvious as the west facade is baroque. Inside there are five baroque altars dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The church boasts a Gothic statue of Our Lady with Baby Jesus sculpted around 1500 and a rennaissance tomb. We looked in but did not go in as we did not want to disturb the celebrations. Perhaps another time?
