Church of the Savior
Denmark, Horsens

Walking the streets of the historic city of Horsens, from afar you will see the tall spire of the Church of the Savior. It was built in 1225 and is considered one of the oldest buildings in the city. The church was built in the Romanesque style on the site of an older wooden one and is dedicated to St. James. Over time, the side rooms and the bell tower were completed. In 1418, by order of the Pope, she was consecrated in honor of John the Baptist. The time of the Reformation was difficult, the church was badly damaged by fire, the only thing that survived was the pulpit dating from 1670. Only in 1936 was it restored. Today it is a beautiful church that keeps centuries-old history in its walls.
