St. Lawrence's Church, Warsaw

Local nameKościół pw. Świętego Wawrzyńca
LocationWola, Warsaw, Polska

St. Lawrence's Church is a Roman Catholic church located in Warsaw's borough of Wola. A neoclassicist building, the site is best known as the central point of Polish "Redoubt No. 56" during the 1831 battle for Warsaw.

A small wooden church was built here as early as the 14th century. It was first mentioned in writing in a document by Antipope John XXIII dated 1412. Until the 17th century the church was just a branch of the St. John's Cathedral, and it was not until 1611 that a separate parish was founded in the village of Wielka Wola.

During the Deluge the wooden church was destroyed by Swedish forces, but was rebuilt soon afterwards.
