Horne Church was established in the Late Middle Ages on the southwest part of the island of Funen, Denmark. This church, founded as a Catholic place of worship, is situated in the village of Horne. The church no longer serves as a Catholic parish; it now belongs to the lutheran Church of Denmark. Horne Church is the only round church on Funen. Originally constructed from granite stonework, it was modified in the 15th century with the addition of Gothic extensions on the east and west.
2. Faaborg Klokketårn
Faaborg Bell Tower is a free-standing church tower from Faaborg's first church, Sct. Nicolai Church. The church was built around 1250, while the bell tower itself was built in the late 1400s. After the Reformation, the town was given the Church of the Holy Spirit, which had been built as a monastery church a few years earlier. Sct. Nicolai Church was then demolished. However, the tower remained standing, probably because it has been a good point of reference for seafarers.
