Although I couldn’t take any photographs of the Church of St. Hubert in Amel (see: St. Lambertus Pfarrkirche, Manderfeld) (the first time, the floor was cleaned and wet and I couldn’t go inside, and the second time, it was closed), I managed to visit the Church of St. Eligius in Büllingen, in order to finish my series of churches built in the place of former Frankish palaces.
Church of St. Hubert in Amel.
Antoniushäuschen – a previous 14th – or 15th-century Gothic chapel, used nowadays as a funeral parlor and a museum.
The Baroque Market cross of Amel from 1722.
Büllingen arose probably in the time of 450-600 A.C., but it was first mentioned in 789-790 as villa Bollingen.
The church, or more precise it’s oldest part – the tower, was first mentioned in 1130.
The church is one ‘Einstützenkirche’ (see the Church of Kronenburg) and in contrast to the church of Manderfeld, it has preserved this construction to this day, although its Neo-Gothic furnishings date from the late 19th century.
Early Roman font from the 10th century – one of the church treasures and maybe the only thing that can capture my attention here.
Various keystones on the vault.
Old tombstones in the church yard.
