“Quite a climb”

Pfarrkirche St. Martin
Reviewed 2 October 2011

One has to climb some and then ends up at the church, surounded by a calvary. The church stands somewhat high in town, at the porch are old reliefs and headstones which gives the church a special charm. Most certain is that where the Catholic parish church of St. Martin in Lorch is located today, there was already a building in Roman times. The construction of the present church began towards the end of the 13th century with the choir and was completed in the 14th century. Parts of its late Romanesque predecessor are preserved, for instance in the central partition of the choir and the baptistry. In 1480, the western façade, the entrance hall and the gallery were reconstructed. In 1576, the tower was restored. Despite some losses in the 19th century, the majority of the high-quality furnishings were preserved, including in particular the high altar dating back to 1483. The altar stands out in German art history as the largest and perhaps first carved altarpiece originally designed in monochrome.
