The Roman Catholic parish church of St. Laurentius in Windeck-Dattenfeld was built between 1879 and 1880 as a two-towered church in the neo-Romanesque style in place of a previous building demolished in 1878. Because of the double-towered façade, the church is often called "Siegtaldom". The two lower floors of the north tower come from the old parish church from the 12/13th century, which was originally probably only a chapel, but was extended to a three-nave church with a length of about 25.60 m and a width of 7.85 m and was already dedicated to St. Lawrence of Rome.
