The ruins of the church seen from the north-northeast.


In a well hidden spot at the end of a narrow lane there are the ruins of a small yet nice church.
According to some records a church was at this site in 1302. The ruins that we see today are much later, but they were already in ruins in the first half of the 19th century.
The building is ruinous, completely taken over by the vegetation, with trees that grow inside the building and out of the walls. The most intact part of the building is the northeast (60°) wall where traces of the altar window can be seen. The northwest and southeast walls survive in part. The southwest section of the church is totally missing. Inside and around the church there are some interesting grave markers, along with one that commemorates seven members of the Dominican Friary in Donore.
About 30 metres east-northeast is a nice holy well.
