    The Catholic Church of St. Albanus in the wine town of Stetten is nestled in the Werntal valley and is about 22 kilometers north of Würzburg. In the south, the place is bordered by vineyards and the Wern. Some old houses with pretty courtyards are worth seeing in the center. The church of St. Albanus, which is much too large for the village, also rises there. It is a large hall with nine bays completed in 1965. In earlier times there was a five-aisled hall church from the Echter post-Gothic style with a beautiful neo-Gothic interior. This was torn down in 1963 because it had become too small. Only the Echterturm and the two-bay vaulted choir remain from the exterior. Some items were taken over into the new church. The baptismal font from 1622, the 14 pictures of the Way of the Cross, a small baroque altar, a statue of the Madonna and a baroque altarpiece. Some parts of the old neo-Gothic winged altar and the crucifixion group, which can be seen on the east wall, were also adopted. The modern rose window with a huge crucifix in the north wall is impressive.

    Church of St. Albanus Stetten
     
    Until 1803, the residents of Hesslar also went to church here.
    At first it was smaller, today's rear broadside was the long side.
    The right side age comes from the former cemetery chapel.
    Tabernacle from the old church hangs on the right long side.
    The organ used to be on the front right, the sound echoed from the left wall
    back, the organists (monastery women) became deaf over time.
     
    In 1884 the church was extended by 2 yokes (probably arches).
    In 1931 the school house was built next to the church.
    In 1969 a new larger church was built, only the tower is still the old one.
    Wine cellars used to be on both sides of the church.
    On one side you can still see the entrance doors.
