No spectacular, but nice church. However, spectacularly incompetent church musicians and sound technicians. The church musician often plays very uncertainly and incorrectly at both funerals and weddings. Would rather be without music at my funeral than let him play. Then we have the sound engineer who is both extremely unpleasant and does not seem to have the faintest idea of ​​how neither a microphone nor sound and acoustics work. He works actively to ensure that the church (which actually has fine acoustics) is filled with roundabouts and he does not compensate by being pleasant or pleasant. He has both insulted and sworn at me at funerals and is usually extremely careless, unpleasant and unpleasant. It is embarrassing that the church, which is financed by the church tax, employs such staff when there are many competent people waiting for jobs.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
