700 Years of Church of Simmer

luxembourg church stampThere are many churches and religious art monuments between Steinfort and Mersch in the Eisch valley. The Romano-Gothic St. Martin Parish Church in Simmern, with its cemetery and crosses partly dating back to the 16th century, both been protected as historic monuments since 1962, is certainly an excellent example.

According to a pious legend from the 14th century, Henry VII, Holy Roman Emperor is said to have died in the arms of Thomas von Siebenborn in 1313 in Buonconvento in Tuscany, Italy. According to the same legend, Thomas, lord of the castle of Simmern returned to the village and had the first church built there, which was consecrated in 1317.
