Friesland, as does Groningen, is known for it s churches built on little hills.
Friesland calls them 'terp' (mound) and in Groningen they are known as 'wierde'.
I just love these lumps in the mainly flat rural landscape in these provinces.
From far you can recognize a village by its tower, which stand up like a beacon in flatland.

The graveyards around the churches often go back many years.

A typical farm where once a rich farmer has lived.
