Malt Church

Romanesque church, built of ashlar. On the gable one reads "1179". Originally it said "1879" because in that year the church was given was a ridge turret. When the repair was going on, the rusty old number "8" in the date fell down, it was promptly replaced by another number, a number "1" - the blacksmith found it easier that way - and as a matter of fact the new date corresponded much better with the actual age of the church. Presumably it was built around 1160. The font from the 11th century is an unusual piece of stone masonry. In heavy relief 3 warriors and a centaur can be seen, along with a tree and Samson fighting the lion.
