St James, Kutna Hora, Czech Republic

The main parish church of the town lies just behind the main square (where we partook of a large beer for 90p) and was built 1350-86, although work continued well into the following century. It is another hall church, but preserves some baroque altarpieces, including the high altar of 1678. There was a statue of a saint with a crutch, not sure which - perhaps one of our iconography experts knows! However I loved the small figures of the silver miners in the south aisle.
