The church is the oldest of the parish, built about 1225-50 into large bricks near to a holy spring. The church is rebuilt and extended during more periods, which gives it a unik look.
The ship and the choir are built into large bricks. You see the Roman touches clearly in the choir, which had 7 round arc windows, which now are bricked up.
