  • Church of Sts. Martin in the Fields - built and named in honor of St. Martin of Tours, in the 13th century. She really was located in between the fields and Vestministrom City.

    The current church was built in 1722-1724 in the neoclassical style Gibbs Jays. She decided to completely reconstruct, because it was dangerous for people stay. Gibbs first proposed circular nave and domed ceiling, but it was considered too expensive, so his idea was rejected. As a result, the building was carried out in the ancient style of the Corinthian order, surmounted by a steeple bell tower, the top of which is decorated with a golden crown.

    In the early twentieth century basement of the church of St. Martin in the Fields was homeless shelters during the war, he served as an air raid shelter, and today it is interesting café in the old walls of the sounds of the classics, you can escape from the city.
