Geocache Description:


Nīcgales Romas katoļu baznīca atrodas A6 šosejas ceļmalā. Nīcgale ir mazs ciems, kas pirmoreiz minēts jau 1254.gadā! Padomju laikos ciems piedzīvoja strauju izaugsmi, jo netālu tika uzbūvēta keramzīta rūpnīca. Latvijas laikos daudzi ciema iedzīvotāji aizbrauca uz Daugavpili, Rīgu, Angliju, Īriju, taču Nīcgale joprojām turpina pastāvēt kā mazs ciems ceļmalā Daugavas krastos.

Pirmā un vienīgā baznīca Nīcgalē bija uzcelta jau 1803.gadā; tā bija no koka. 1863.gadā uzbūvēja jauno mūra ēku, kas smagi cieta 1.pasaules kara laikā. Pēc kara sākās baznīcas atjaunošanas darbi, kas ritēja arī padomju laikos. 



Nīcgale Roman Catholic church is located on A6 road. Nīcgale is a small village, that has been mentioned already in 1254! During soviet times village experienced rapid development as a factory of expanded clay was built there. When Latvia got back its independence, many inhabitants of the village moved to Daugavpils, Rīga, England or Ireland, however Nīcgale continued its life as a small village.

Church was built in 1803 as a wooden construction. Then in 1863 it was rebuilt as a stone building. Church was destroyed during World War First. Reconstruction started in time of the first Latvian independence, and works continued during soviet times.
