Object description

Church first mentioned in writings in the 15th century as St. Bartholomew’s Church. There are also ornate ceiling lamps in the church dating back to the second part of the 19th century. In 1930, the new iron-concrete tower, designed after architect Konstantins Pēkšēns drawing, was completed, and the new altar adorned with the painting “Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane” by Janis Roberts Tilbergs. During the Soviet era from 1965 to 1990, the Sigulda church was the only house of the Lord and was used by a number of members from different religions.
At the church, you can view the exhibition on the church’s history and a series of artworks made from buttons called “The Button mosaics” by Valdis Atāls. You are also welcome to climb the tower and take a look at the area from above!
