The Groningen countryside is characterized by old churches. These historic places of worship with their austere architecture, world-famous organs and modest interiors provide an image of the old days. The St. Walfridus church in Bedum stands out because of its leaning tower, which leans even more than the tower of Pisa. The church in Scheemda from 1515 is another jewel and was once used by the area residents as a refuge in the case of heavy weather and floodings. Groningen churchyards are special because of the many grave verses next to the names and dates on the tombstones.
