Type : Vertical
Remark :
There is a sundial left to the stepped gable. This is the restored version of one that was originally on the right of the gable.
One can still see the rest of the original dial. They have been kept during the restoration of the church. The new dial is a good example of a respectful restoration.
An anecdote: when he was asked whether there was a sundial on his church, the priest replied in 2000 A sundial? No. I am not Godfather and I do not know about everything but if there was a sundial on the church I would know it. After some investigation it appeared there must have been two sundials on the church!

4 pictures for this sundial:
