Hyllested Church - Djursland - Eastjutland

The church is visited because of its frescos (they have been un- covered) by restoration in 1965-66) from the 16th century. Romanesque font with lion figures and a man's head. Late baroque altar piece. The picture on the altar piece is from 1750, painted by one of the famous danish churchpainters: Mogens Thrane.

At Djursland there are a lot of beautiful and ancient churches. Each of them has their own story to tell, several of them have belonged to the nobility at Djursland. If you are going to explore the churches, you will see beautiful frescos, but also more modern art.
