Description

What survives at Baldungan is the ruin of the old church and the church tower. Baldungan Castle built by the Knights Templar in the 13th century was a short distance to the northwest of the church. The most striking feature is the great tower of the church or abbey, 70 feet high and 22 feet square, entered by an arched doorway, leading to a flight of 53 steps to the battlements, on the eastern side of which is a two-arched bell-turret. The buildings originally forming a spacious quadrangular court, flanked by four square towers were erected on the site of an ancient dun or moat.
