Jyllinge Kirke ligger ud til Roskilde Fjord 12 km nord for Roskilde. Den romanske kirke er bevaret i sin oprindelige udstrækning med apsis, kor og skib bygget af rå og delvis kløvede kampesten og med hjørner af granitkvadre. Der er tre gotiske tilbygninger, tårn, våbenhus og kapel. Prædikestolen fra 1618 er fra Brix Snedker i Roskilde. Døbefonten af granit er middelalderlig. Jyllinge Kirke hørte i middelalderen under Æbelholt Kloster, som var efterfølgeren efter det kloster, der indtil 1175 lå på Eskildsø. Den munk eller præst der var bestyrer på klosterets ladegård på Eskildsø forretede gudstjenesten. Efter reformationen kom Kirken i kongens eje og den lå under Roskildegård. I 1687 solgtes den. Jyllinge Kirke med annekskirken Gundsømagle kom i 1763 til Hegnstrupgård. Her blev de til de overgik til selveje i 1920.

Roman Walls of Lugo

Roman Walls of Lugo are an exceptional architectural, archaeological and constructive legacy of Roman engineering, dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The Walls are built of internal and external stone facings of slate with some granite, with a core filling of a conglomerate of slate slabs and worked stone pieces from Roman buildings, interlocked with lime mortar.

Their total length of 2117 m in the shape of an oblong rectangle occupies an area of 1.68 ha. Their height varies between 8 and 10 m, with a width of 4.2 m, reaching 7 m in some specific points. The walls still contain 85 external towers, 10 gates (five of which are original and five that were opened in modern times), four staircases and two ramps providing access to the walkway along the top of the walls, one of which is internal and the other external. Each tower contained access stairs leading from the intervallum to the wall walk of town wall, of which a total of 21 have been discovered to date.

The defences of Lugo are the most complete and best preserved example of Roman military architecture in the Western Roman Empire.

Despite the renovation work carried out, the walls conserve their original layout and the construction features associated with their defensive purpose, with walls, battlements, towers, fortifications, both modern and original gates and stairways, and a moat.

Since they were built, the walls have defined the layout and growth of the city, which was declared a Historical-Artistic Ensemble in 1973, forming a part of it and becoming an emblematic structure that can be freely accessed to walk along. The local inhabitants and visitors alike have used them as an area for enjoyment and as a part of urban life for centuries.

The fortifications were added to UNESCO"s World Heritage List in late 2000 and are a popular tourist attraction.
