Bevtoft Church is located in the heart of Southern Jutland, and began its life as a romanesque chapel, which was expanded to a real parish church in the 1100s. Visit the church and the past, as you see the ancient features.
The vaulted ceiling above the high altar is an octagonal crossed vault, which opens towards the nave in a pointed arch, where the organ is placed. The choir also has an octagonal crossed vault, while the nave has a flat beamed ceiling.
Here you can see a deesis, meaning a representation of the praying Virgin Mary and John the Baptist flanking Jesus dressed in majesty, as well as a First World War memorial.References:
The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.
The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
