Church of St. Gangolf Tips (9)

St Gangolphs Catholic Church

The towers of St Gangolph's reached 62 meters when the widow of Lord Mayor, Adelheid Besselich donated them in the 15th century and thus were actually taller than those of the cathedral, which raised one of its towers by a storey not long after.
The interior of the church has a Late Gothic colour scheme and many interesting art pieces and statuary.
It can be quite frustrating trying to find the entrance if you haven't done your homeowrk (like I hadn't, in this instance). I walked around all the surrounding streets keeping the towers in my sights and after much toing and froing and cursing, I found the ornate entrance in between two of the buildings in the Hauptmarkt.

St Gangolp, my preferred church!

This church deserves a “tip”, only because of its bell tower and because from where ever you are in the pedestrian area, you see it! And may be I liked it too much! This church is not as famous as the cathedral. The building we see today in late gothic style, replaced an older church, near the main market place.
The square bell tower with the turrets, its colours in the dark sky, . . . I just loved it! (main picture). Of course, the church had some later additions, like this baroque entrance, on the market side (picture 2). This statue (picture 3) of the Mother mourning her Son at the entrance, almost made me break in tears, so moved I was; I did not find information on this statue, but I am still searching. . . . I am not really religion linked, but religious inspiration leads to wonderful and moving art! And this is true for modern art too, like the glass window from Charles Crodel, you also discover at the entrance. There was a mass when I was there, and I did not want to disturb the worshippers, so the visit stopped at the entrance, But I could not stop looking at the tower, its shape and colours. . . (picture 5).

CHURCH OF ST. GANGOLF

The church of St. Gangolf seemed to be crushed by all the building's surrounding it.

I did have trouble finding the entrance way!

It is worth having a look inside this 15th century Church which has a four story Tower. The Tower, now at a height of 62metre's, was built 100 year's before the Church!

Lovely painting behind the Altar.

OPEN DAILY FROM 7 - 6pm ADMISSION IS FREE.

St. Gangolf Church

Just off the market square, behind the gilded gate of iron and marble, stands the city's first church named for the Roman soldier who was named a saint. The church building is surrounded by a protective wall comprised of almost three dozen buildings, all of them now containing various shops and boutiques. The current structure was built in 14th-century gothic manner, replacing a 10th century church that was built after the original was destroyed in a Viking invasion in 882 CE.

Early one morning I sought refuge under the gate's archway from a sudden hailstorm.

The church of St Gangolf.

The oldest parts of St Gangolf church stems from 964 when the first stone was laid. In 1284 was it rebuilt in Gotic style and in 1507 was the tower heightened to 62 m. The church was severly damaged in December 1944 due to bombs and fire but later reconstructed.

St Gangolph church

The south of the Great Market is dominated by the huge shape of the church of St. Gangolph and its mighty tower (1507m). Build between the 13th and 15th centuies, the church is a symbol of Trier's civic pride. You reach it through a charming Baroque gateway, set in the circle of houses surrounding it.
