Osterlars Church, located 5 km south of Gudhjem on the Danish island of Bornholm, is the largest and oldest of the island's four round churches. It is a popular tourist attraction with some 12,000 visitors a year. Built in about 1160, it was dedicated to St. Lawrence. It consists of an apse, an oval chancel, a large round nave and has three storeys. There is evidence the church was once fortified, the top storey serving as an open shooting gallery.
