Marmiroi Church

Pashaliman, Albania

Marmiroi church is mentioned in historical records for the first time in 1307. Since it has no narthex, and because of other similarities to other similar churches in Bulgaria and former Yugoslavia, it is thought to have been built in the 12th or 13th century AD, although some researchers have put its construction period in the 10th century. The most accredited hypothesis is that it was dedicated to Saint Mary.

Lovely historical church located in remote farm fields. The drive there is a little rocky however doable with any car. Once you arrive you can either park the car on the dirt road and cross the river, around the hill by foot to reach the church or drive the whole way. Lots of turtles everywhere on the road to the church! Worth a visit!

Ancient and untouched, very rare and important. Hard to fathom how it's just in the open, for anyone to visit. For the cultural and historical interested, definitely a sight to visit.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
