Sæby Church

Interesting
This church has astonishing frescoes from the Middle Ages and fine 16C furnishings belonging to a (demolished) Carmelite convent dedicated to the Virgin Mary and founded at the end of the 15C. The oldest frescoes painted in warm colours are very expressive; they embellish the left of the nave, the part that remains of the primitive church. One group illustrates the legend of Joachim and Anna; the other, The Last Judgement. Don't miss the 16C altarpiece, the Renaissance pulpit, the stalls and the sculpture on wood of the Virgin and Child, in late Gothic style.
