Interesting story, great church for its history

The building doesn't show much, it is old, they don't even know exactly how old it is. Was probably built in 13th or 14th century but it was the only church in town until 20th... read more

A church like many other, not a particularly interesting one. The tower is currently under renovation.

This is worth a visit no matter time of year. It is a mighty building on the inside and majestic from the outside. Take a walk around it and then step inside. Mindblowing that this was hand manmade.

This church is interesting in several ways. It is built in the 13th century and with stones from the neighbourhood. Different kind of stones because they ran out of the first stones. The architecture is gothic. Worth visiting.

Nice good looking church from the outside, but nothing really to see inside... Everything is remodeled, fee things you can see there are original

The church is situated near the main city square. The first church was built on this site in the 13th century with the tower and one side chapel built in the 15th century and another side chapel renovated in the late 19th century. There has clearly been more recent renovations, especially to the roof. So quite a mix of building... More

This church is restored several times. You can see many different styles but most gothic. It´s rather small and dark inside.

It is a lovely cathedral in a pretty area of Orebo. It is easy to find and there is plenty of parking around the downtown area. It is well maintained inside and out but having said that it is just one more old church.

I stumbled upon this church during a service. Children were singing and the place was so crowded I had to stand in the doorway, half in and half out. Seeing this church when its 'alive' is magical. The acoustics are awesome, the people warm and friendly. What a beautiful church.
