At this charming location, there once stood a church built by the noble Zedtwitz family between 1480 and 1490. However, later on, this nobility was compelled by the need to reconstruct the church in the Baroque style. The reason for this was not only the requirement for greater capacity to serve the growing Zedtwitz Podhradské estate, but also the desire to give the church a new and elegant appearance.

From the original structure, only the beautiful church tower was preserved. It has a square base but transforms into an octagonal structure in the upper levels. The crown of the tower is adorned with a picturesque onion dome that captures the eye.

Upon entering, you will encounter a rectangular nave with a high roof, and on both sides of the nave, there are small chapels that impart a unique atmosphere to the church. But that's not all - the church's interiors are entirely constructed from wood without a single nail. Instead, wooden pegs were used, which is a very unusual and historical construction method.

The entire interior is further adorned with beautiful angelic paintings created by the talented artist Rodius von Föslau in 1711. The altar and choir stalls from 1710 are also masterpieces - they were created by Jindřich Šimon Zietler from Doubrava.

One of the most interesting features in the church is the painting of the castle placed in a niche. It is believed that this painting represents the oldest surviving depiction of the now-vanished castle in Kopaniny.
