In the dunes west of Skagen is the tower of the former parish church, the Middle Age church of Sct. Laurentius, which is said to have been constructed in the last half of the 1300s. This is where the congregation would meet up for 400 years before the sand covered the church road and the graveyard and the church was closed. Apart from the church tower, the ground plan has been marked with red poles, and fascine poles mark the known parts of the old graveyard wall. Approx. 400 metres from the sand-covered church is a parking lot with tables, benches, and toilet facilities. During the summer, you will also find a small shop where you can buy your ticket to enter the church tower.
