The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Rancířov, founded in 1257 by the Ranožir family, underwent a historical development from a Gothic fortified chapel to a late Baroque building. After a fire in the 18th century, it was rebuilt in the Rococo style under the direction of August Kienmayer. The church, typical of its late Baroque architecture, is located on the Rancířovský brook. Its entrance is decorated with statues and a cross, while the tower, modified after a fire, bears traces of its original defensive function. The interior is decorated with a marble column altar, frescoes and Baroque statues. The Baroque organ in the church, made by Ignatius Florian Casparides around 1765, is mounted on a choir decorated with gilded pilasters and cherubs.
