We went to this village expressly to visit the round church – very interesting, but don’t ask me anything else about the place, because I didn’t see it.
Osterlars has the biggest round church in Bornholm, buIlt is the 11th century. About it, Planetware says:”The central pillar is hollow with internal ribbed vaulting. The space inside, known as the “oven”, is joined to the rest of the nave by six arcades. On the exterior of the “oven” can be seen wall-paintings of 1350 portraying scenes from the life of Jesus and the Last Judgment. When the church was restored in 1955 the “oven” was converted into a baptistery with a granite font.”Yes! I confirmed.
