#deinsauerland / Outdooractive POIs / Provost Church of St. Peter and Andrew Brilon

The Brilon parish church of St. Peter and Andrew was elevated to the status of a provost church in 1925. Seen from the market square, it is located slightly elevated behind the town hall. The mighty west tower of the hall church, visible from afar, is considered Brilon's landmark.

The church construction began in 1220. After the construction around 1250 the small west tower was replaced by the present early Gothic tower. It received the 31 m high baroque dome probably in 1665 during the extensions of the bell tower. The copper-gilt Pankratius cross (around 1100) is considered an important art treasure. Among the preserved paintings from the 14th century is a remarkable portrait of St. Christopher in the southern transept. Also interesting from the point of view of art history are the portals, whose columns have sharp grooves: rare traces of archaic saber sharpening. Tower tours possible from May to October
