History

The Romanesque church consisted first only out of a nave with chancel and apse. The tower with the stepped gables and the arches inside the church were added in the 15th century. While the expansion in the 19th century the church was given a larger chancel with apse and two transepts. The central nave remained unchanged in principle and is still almost equivalent to its original appearance of the 12th century.
