Description
The Romanesque church with walls of granite has a square choir and a nave. The north transept was constructed in 15th century and the two south transepts and the tower were constructed in 18th century. In the 15th century the church was vaulted.
The vaults were painted around 1480 by the Helsingborg workshop. Probably were the paintings paid by the owner of Bollerup Castle Barbara Brahe.
The church was consecrated to St. Andrew, who was the patron of seamen and fishers. In the vaults the story of St. Andrew is told.
