EN (Translation):
"St. Martin is a Catholic parish church in Hillesheim, a town in the district of Vulkaneifel in Rhineland-Palatinate, which was built in 1852/53. The church is centrally located at the Graf-Mirbach-Platz and is protected as a cultural monument.

Description
Since the church was dedicated to St. Martin of Tours, one can assume that the parish will be over a thousand years old. Archangel Michael is the second patron of the Church. St. Martin was created as a classical hall building in the years 1852/53. From 1971 to 1973 the church was fundamentally renovated and repainted in 2001.
