Fjelde Church was built in around 1100 and the tower was erected in 1500s. The font dates from c. 1575 and pulpit from 1610. The rare kind of altarpiece doesn't have a painting at all; there are only citations from Catechism.

Great church
John Hansen (18 months ago)
The church has a Romanesque ship and choir with rich cornices, not least on the sides of the choir. A later Gothic tower stands with combed gables. The church is whitewashed with white details and very ornate. Fjelde Church is in Romanesque style, the tower of which is an extension from the 16th century. The baptismal font is from approx. 1575, while the pulpit is from ca. 1610th The altarpiece of the church is a catechism mustache as it has no image but is a tablet with Bible quotes.

A beautiful red-washed village church, built around the year 1100, where the oldest parts of the ship and the choir are in Romanesque style, while the tower and porch are in Gothic style, all of monk in the monks. After belonging to the county of Christiansholm since 1839, the church passed to self-ownership on July 1, 1916.

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.
