History
In the Liesková part there is a well-preserved brick bell tower with one bell. According to the parish chronicle, an older wooden bell tower built in front of the church stood on this site, because in 1793 it was repaired as very dilapidated. During the great fire in 1814, it burned completely and not even the bell could withstand the glow of the fire. In 1815, the people of Lieskov had a new bell poured and in ten years they built a new bell tower.

In the Liesková part there is a well-preserved brick bell tower with one bell. According to the parish chronicle, an older wooden bell tower built in front of the church stood on this site, because in 1793 it was repaired as very dilapidated. During the great fire in 1814, it burned completely and not even the bell could withstand the glow of the fire. In 1815, the people of Lieskov had a new bell poured and in ten years they built a new bell tower.

The building is interesting in that it is built in a circle, but not in such a way that one can speak of a Romanesque rotunda, as is the case with the bell tower in Skalica. In the 60's, it was damaged by an earthquake and a strong wind (photo on the right), so the people of Lieskov repaired it.

The bell broke after many years of use, so in 2020 it was replaced by a new one. At the consecration, he was named John in honor of a native of Cerov, Archbishop Mons. Ján Bukovský.
