Balbronn protestant church

The church is built on the site of what was once a Celtic sanctuary and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The 11th century nave was constructed on a base of pre-Romanesque origin. The West door dates from the 15th-16th centuries, but as early as Romanesque times the entrance could be barricaded by means of a sliding beam within the thick wall. With its very narrow and high windows the Romanesque nave lent itself passably well to passive defence. The nave was rebuilt during the 13th and 14th centuries.
