Døllefjelde, village 9 km southeast of Sakskøbing. St. Kjeld's Chapel was built in 1266 as a small pilgrimage church near St. Kjeld's Source (a well is located northeast of the rectory). The popularity of the Holy Source led to the expansion of the chapel in the 1300s and 1400s, and it now appears as Døllefjelde Church. Every year, a large spring market was held on Mikkelsdag, 29 September. Since 1980, the tradition has been revived with the Døllefjelde-Musse Creamer market during the big-day holiday.

A beautiful whitewashed village church built around 1100. Døllefjelde church choir is the ship in an older Romanesque church. The original church has been rather small and thus not turned on. In the 14th century, the new ship was built and a little later the tower. Ifm. a restoration in 1694, a sacristy on the south side of the choir was broken down. The same applies to the porch, which was previously located at the ship's north side. In the course of the years, it was repeatedly complained of its fallacy, and in 1855—56 it was demolished, while the entrance of the church was abandoned to the tower, where there had so far been a material house. After belonging to the county of Knuthenborg since 1714, the church passed to self-ownership on July 1, 1911

Royal Palace of Naples

Royal Palace of Naples was one of the four residences near Naples used by the Bourbon Kings during their rule of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies (1734-1860): the others were the palaces of Caserta, Capodimonte overlooking Naples, and the third Portici, on the slopes of Vesuvius.

Construction on the present building was begun in the 17th century by the architect Domenico Fontana. Intended to house the King Philip III of Spain on a visit never fulfilled to this part of his kingdom, instead it initially housed the Viceroy Fernando Ruiz de Castro, count of Lemos. By 1616, the facade had been completed, and by 1620, the interior was frescoed by Battistello Caracciolo, Giovanni Balducci, and Belisario Corenzio. The decoration of the Royal Chapel of Assumption was not completed until 1644 by Antonio Picchiatti.

In 1734, with the arrival of Charles III of Spain to Naples, the palace became the royal residence of the Bourbons. On the occasion of his marriage to Maria Amalia of Saxony in 1738, Francesco De Mura and Domenico Antonio Vaccaro helped remodel the interior. Further modernization took place under Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies. In 1768, on the occasion of his marriage to Maria Carolina of Austria, under the direction of Ferdinando Fuga, the great hall was rebuilt and the court theater added. During the second half of the 18th century, a 'new wing' was added, which in 1927 became the Vittorio Emanuele III National Library. By the 18th century, the royal residence was moved to Reggia of Caserta, as that inland town was more defensible from naval assault, as well as more distant from the often-rebellious populace of Naples.

During the Napoleonic occupation the palace was enriched by Joachim Murat and his wife, Caroline Bonaparte, with Neoclassic decorations and furnishings. However, a fire in 1837 damaged many rooms, and required restoration from 1838 to 1858 under the direction of Gaetano Genovese. Further additions of a Party Wing and a Belvedere were made in this period. At the corner of the palace with San Carlo Theatre, a new facade was created that obscured the viceroyal palace of Pedro de Toledo.

In 1922, it was decided to transfer here the contents of the National Library. The transfer of library collections was made by 1925.

The library suffered from bombing during World War II and the subsequent military occupation of the building caused serious damage. Today, the palace and adjacent grounds house the famous Teatro San Carlo, the smaller Teatrino di Corte (recently restored), the Biblioteca Nazionale Vittorio Emanuele III, a museum, and offices, including those of the regional tourist board.
