Roman Catholic Church of the Virgin Mary of Sarkaņi

Between the Sedzers and the Cirma Lake Sarkaņu Catholic Church. In 1718, the first wooden church was built in the castle, which had gathered the faithful of the faithful times, because it had a wonderful Holy image of the Mother of God, which, after the legend, was found on the banks of a large oak tree at the banks of the Lake of Cirma, and a number of stories about miraculous healing. The image was painted very long ago, around the 15 th-16 th century on the oak board and embroidered with a silver suit. The Holy image is also transferred to the stone church of 1860, where hundreds of pilgrims are gathering every year in Pentecost.

The Red Church is a simple square-shaped stone building with a small square tower above the roof at the entrance. A wall-bell tower is located at the church. The church is marked by the painting of the Virgin Marie's miracle, which is painted on a tree and covered with a silver suit. This painting is created in the 15 th or 16 th century.

The Red Church and the adjacent call tower-caplich are architectural monuments of national significance.
