Wooden Roman Catholic Church of St. Francis of Assisi, Hervartov

The Gothic church of St. Francis of Assisi, built around 1500, is one of the oldest wooden churches of this type in Slovakia. The most impressive of the interior gothic murals are those depicting Adam and Eve in Paradise and the duel of St. George with the dragon. The interior hides the altar of the Virgin Mary, St. Catherine of Alexandria and St. Barbara (1460-1470). Also interesting are the murals of St. John the Baptist and St. Paul the Apostle. Among the paintings is The Last Supper (1653) and the St. Francis of Assisi, St. Christopher and St. Catherine of Siena (1460-1470). This wooden church is one of the rarest sacral buildings in Slovakia.
