Exmorra (Fr): reformed church


The church of Exmorra is a small aisleless church from the 13th century.  In ca. 1300 the nave was lengthened and a tower was added. Of this tower, which collapsed in 1836, only the lower part remains. That same year the wooden tower and the western facade were built. Until the church was restored in 1963-1966 it was covered with a thick coat of plaster, underneath which many traces of its original Romanesque condition had been preserved. The big windows in the nave were replaced by smaller ones on the north side. On this side the wall has a peculiar curve. In the south wall thelarger windows, which are probably from the 19th century, remained. The church is closed by a Romanesque semi-circular choir, the windows in which were reopened.
