They are incredibly creative when laying grave flowers after burial.

Falkerslev Church is located on a flat terrain a little north of Falkerslev village. The whitewashed church, which consists of a Romanesque choir and a ship with a Gothic west tower and porch from 1862 at the west end of the tower. The choir is built entirely of chalk squares on a sloping shelf. The ship is built of monk stone, probably a little later than the choir. The tower is erected in the late Gothic period by monk stones and boulders. The altarpiece is a painting from 1845, The Baptism of Jesus, by August Thomsen. The barrel-shaped baptismal font of granite is Romanesque. The pulpit was carved in 1640 by Jørgen Ringnis.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
