Take a walk in the past

A medieval church consisting of Romanesque nave with vaulted ceiling ind late Gothic chancel. The porch is to the South, vestry to the North and tower to the West. (Romanesque style = Norman style In Eng¬and). The nave is constructed from cleft granite boulders on a granite plinth with a profile of double roll mouldings. To the north one of the old Romanesque windows has been preserved. The exterior of the porch features a stepped gable surmounting three false, arched win¬dows or niches framed by a continuous recessed band. The letters FGALLLR 1830 indicate that the tower underwent a complete restoration that year, at which time the church was part of the Tranekær Estate.
