The construction of St Michael the Archangel's parish church began towards the end of the 14th century. The church is today a landmark in Skalice and is located on the central triangel square. However, it is likely that this originaly one-navy church in late-Gothic style (1450-1470) was rebuilt to a three-navy basilica located on foundations of much older building. The church burned down several times but it was rebuilt again. Also, some adjustments were done on it. One gave it it's massive tower that has a late-renaissance arch. Even you with your guide can enter it and enjoy a beautiful view of Skalice on the top.
