Brochow exists on a tourist map thanks to the defensive church which resembles a castle. It was built in Mazovian Gothic style in 1551 – 1561. Its Renaissance interior is covered by a barrel vault of the Pultusk type, decorated with a geometric pattern. In 1806 Fryderyk Chopin’s parents had a wedding here and the composer’s birth certificate is still kept in this church.

Brochow was also a site of an important battle in September 1939 in the beginning of World War 2 between Polish and German armies. Battle subscribed in history as a battle on Bzura river. Polish General Grzmot - Skotnicki was killed at nearby Tulowice, where a commemorative stone was placed.
