Church of Koerich – Luxembourg


The church was building in 12th century and in 1610, the existing church 
was pulled down and in its place, a new structure was built in Renaissance style.

Finally, the tower was crowned with its distinctive onion-shaped spire in 1791.
The church was fully restored in the early 1990s.

  5. It is a pretty distinctive spire. It looks like the onion has been stretched by someone pulling on the top of the spire.

  6. A igreja é linda, mas foi uma pena não terem construido ao lado da antiga, pois assim teríamos duas para ver! 🙂

  7. A beautiful church, and I like the way you included neighboring buildings and foliage to frame it. Good job! Passau DP has a similar but larger church featured today.
