Establishment of the city is connected with the person of Piotr Włostowic, a duke of Bolesław III Wrymouth. He is considered the founder of the Church of St. Cross. In the eighties of the 12th century, in what was then the village Strzelno, a Norbertine nuns convent was founded. The monastery church originally bore the name church of St.Trinity, in later years the name was extended to St.Trinity and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Strzelno received city rights in 1231.
The 12th-century church of St Prokop, in the shape of a Roman rotunda, is considered to be one of the best preserved original churches in Poland.

The little red brick church is so understated, compared with the other, more ornate buildings. It is so very different in shape from other early churches, seeming to follow the round style of castle turrets.
You have done well to capture so much in one photograph, with details that are interesting and accessible.
The cobbled path makes a very useful lead line.
My warm regards,

Hello Roberto, Nice view of the Strzelno churches. This small one is indeed very famous in Poland, the best example of Romanesque architecture, with beautiful carved columns.
When will you come to Warsaw?

Your composition is great here showing the two churches with their contrasting architecture. The lighting is great and the photo has fine sharpness and detail. The cobblestone path provides a nice lead line for the shot.
