Church ruin St. Laurentius

The roots of the city of Hann. Münden, Germany are at the city quarter Altmünden and there – between high hedges – you will find the ruin of the church (called St. Laurentius) of this place formerly called Gemundi. It was first mentioned in the year 800 CE.

Already in 1626 the church was destroyed to use the stones for repairing the church St. Aegidii in the city center (it was destroyed itself during the 30 years war). In 1993 restauration works started and in the year 2000 an artwork called Pila Bautismal (‘Taufstein‘) by artist Ricardo Brey from Cuba and Belgium was placed there.
