I have a few minutes with me and I have time to sneak into the church before
they close. Holy to the seafarers Sankt Nicolai. In the ceiling of the nave
hangs two ecclesiastical ship from the 1800s. The oldest part is the
choir. The church is first mentioned in 1161 and was probably a fish chapel,
it was then in the monastery in Tumathorp (Eastern Tommarp). In the 1200s
built the nave. In the Middle Ages, built a porch and tower.
The altar is from the early 1600s. From the Middle Ages is the font of
Limestone. Over the font hangs a crown to come in the 1700s. In the early
1600s the church received altar and pulpit. On the pulpit is the bible
citations and it
has the Danish king Christian IV's monogram C4. In the 1700s also came
wooden sculptures. On a pillar is an epitaph of alderman Peter Morck (alderman
from 1694 to 1710), who is buried in the church.
The floor has some beautiful tombstones. In the porch is a black oak
of wreck timber with a list of pastors. There is also a grave slab. The
organ is modern, with an organ loft decorated with figures. Time to close the
church. It became quick visit.
Above the entrance is a sundial. The clock and disagree with a few
minutes. Outside the church are two sculptures by Carl Milles "Angel with
Trumpet" and "sisters". The latter was erected in 1953, from the requirement
Milles teaching has been that the church would be released from the gray
concrete that had to boulders emerge. In this case, a good decision, it gives
the church an unusual charm.
