Aa Kirke

For et par måneder siden tog jeg nogle billeder af Aa Kirke. Det er en ret flot bygning, selve kirken og koret er bygget ca. 1150, tårnet er bygget senere. Jeg har læst et sted at Aa Kirke sammen med ruinen af Østermarie Kirke har været ret specielle, de har været toskibede med en række søjler midt i kirken.

Aa Church

Months ago I took some photos of Aa Church. It is , in my opinion, a rather impressive building.
The nave and the choir are from ca. 1150, the tower is builded later. I have been told, that Aa Church and Østermarie Church (now a ruin) are very rare, they originally had two aisles, the most common are either one or the basilica type with three aisles. The inside is rebuilded it is a pity.

I agree with you, Margit. Very impressive building indeed. And I am fascinated that there seem to be influences in the details from several different cultures. What a treasure - I am so glad it is still with us!
