11/46.- Alsace, Hunawihr, church

Hunawihr is a wine-growers'village. Among the vineyards, on the top of a hill, stands a small, fortified church. Ever since the Reformation, the village church has accommodated both Protestants and Catholics, and up to the present day, the two denominations have always cohabited in one and the same sanctuary -- worshipping at different hours, of course, and also burying their dead in two separate graveyards. The hilltop site offers an interesting view over the Alsace Plain (between the Rhine and the mountains) and the castles which used to protect the shifting borders between France and Germany.
