1663 – St. Magnus Kirche, Lenzfried, Kempten, Bavaria



A simple church exterior masks an elaborate Baroque interior. The design of the church is straightforward, a single nave, no aisles or transepts, leades to a narrow curved apse. The altars are very elaborate with large decorative surrounds. There is also an unusual double balconied loft over the main entrance. The impact of entering this church should not be understated, its size and plain exterior lulls the visitor into the expectation of a simple interior – but as the visitor enters via the small maindoorway, the visual assault of the apse and altars is huge.
