The white washed chalk stone church is set on a small hill over looking fields and a few of the village farms and houses. The church it self was build by bishop Svend of Århus or possibly one of his earlier relatives. In 1177 Svend, who owned a lot of land on Djursland, wrote a will, passing on his lands at Rosmus, Attrup, Ørup, Eringrude and Hyllestedrude to the cisterian monks of Øm Monastery near Ry in midt Jutland. It was named "Vor Frue Kirke" (Virgin Mary) by the monks. The tower was build in 14-1500 centuary, and the crypt under the church was filled in in 1864. The church once had paintings inside on walls and ceilings, but these have been painted over so the church is now white washed all over inside and out. The church is not open for visitors on a daily basis, but there is a notice at the gate regarding how to obtain the key.
