Collegiate church, Tum

The Collegiate church of St Mary and St Alexius in Tum is a Romanesque church of granite built during the years 1140–1161 in Tum in central Poland. This church, restored after sections were destroyed, is the most elaborate Romanesque collegiate church in Poland. It is a double-ended church with galleries over the side aisles. The nave has a wooden roof; at its east end adjoins a barrel-vaulted choir with side apses, and at the west end is an apse flanked by towers.

The photo shows the west end of the church.
