Archaeological research proved the existence of an older Romanesque church at the site of a current Gothic church in the village Žíp near Rimavská Sobota.
“We opened three probes with which we uncovered the bases of an older Romanesque church that used to have an orthogon presbytery,” said archaeologist Alexander Botoš of the Gemersko-malohontské Museum, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
The archaeologist also succeeded to uncover part of the Romanesque nave of this church. He added that the current temple also has some features that may belong to the late-Romanesque era, such as slotted windows at the presbytery.
