The first mention of St. Giles Church of Trebon in 1280 is simply as a local church. In 1367, however, the Augustinian Monastery took it over. It became their church. They rebuilt it as the monastic church. Although part of the Monastic Complex, it stands as an artistic achievement on its own merits.The Church of St. Giles is a double-aisled church. It is unusual to have a twin-aisled interior, particularly for a church of this stature. The exterior and interior do not resemble the original. A fire in 1791 destroyed the original Gothic arch of the presbytery. The replacement suited the times, being Baroque in style. The renovations of 1897 to 1903, replaced much of the Baroque with a neo-Gothic style. Yet, in spite of the physical changes, the Church maintained its roots. It retained some of the most superb Gothic artistic creations. The wall paintings date from the 15th century. As for the other treasures -you can still admire their glory of the copies, that is. You have to go to the National Gallery in Prague to see the originals.
