I'm not a medievalist, but this church could tel you why some are! Built in the 11th C AD, original features remain, but dont miss the life-size 14th C AD statues of Mary and the Magi, just beautiful! They say the place is haunted too and all... spooky! Actually , not really - just pretty amazing!

This church has evolved over the centuries and this is how it feels. The outside looks a bit like Siena, with brickwork in stripes, but has a Romanesque doorway at the side and a close which feels like that of an English cathedral, except that the buildings look Danish. Inside it is an amazing mixture of decorated, painted, vaulted ceiling, Baroque pictures, an absolutely mind-blowing wooden altar piece and cloisters which have paintings on the ceilings of grosteque creatures which are half man, half beast. There is also an extremely strange stone gargoyle in the cloisters.

Allow yourself time to take all this in!

This church looks very impressive from far away, but also inside the church it is very impressive. If you are in the area this is something you really should see.
