Jakobusweg Obermain (at the "Hankirche")During a walk to the so-called Hankirche (actually: "Maria immaculata") at Ebensfeld-Prächting I came across the well-known yellow-blue markings of the Jakobusweg, section Lichtenfels - Vierzehnheiligen - Bamberg.
On a hill above the village Prächting stands the Hankirche. The Baroque building was built in two sections in the first half of the 18th century.There are, of course, more famous buildings in the vicinity of the Hankirche, yet it is worth seeing and remarkable. Above all, the church had a famous and lofty client, Lothar Franz von Schönborn (1655 - 1729), Archbishop of Mainz and Prince Bishop of Bamberg. His coat of arms is in stone above the western gate attached: above the Kurfürstenhut (Archbishop of Mainz), in the middle of Schönborn coat of arms, a lion, above and below the "Mainzer Rad", top left and right below the Bamberger Hochstiftswappen, a lion with oblique beams, in addition the coats of arms of the empires Reichelsberg and Heppenheim. The same coat of arms can be found, for example, at the Bastion "St. Lothar "the festival Rosenberg at Kronach, but there it is not so well preserved.
