How unusual Church, Peter! Is it a central of the city? Best wishes. Eva

This church is one of 4 socalled round churches on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. It dates back to 1100 and was originally also meant to be a fortification where you could hide when the enemy swept the country. It is placed in a field of green as you can see on the google satellite window. No houses very close all alone in a field! Peter
