Interesting medieval church and Roman fort walls; most interesting, though, is possibly the gravestones, which are mainly early-mid 19th century a wealth of social history for the area - most of the men have their profession noted, and a number of the burials are of...More

We stopped at this church while on a cruise excursion. It just happened to be a special festival day, so many activities were going on downtown and there were special concerts in the church. The church itself - rebuilt in 1700 - is charming. It's...More
