Dossenheim-sur-Zinsel

The simultaneaous St-Léonard church

Description

The church stands inside a walled enclosure (Site d’Interprétation du Refuge Fortifié). Here, in the past, the inhabitants of Dossenheim had their own cells where they could stock their provisions or seeds, and take refuge during times of trouble.
Following the old simultaneum prescripts, the Catholic altar is in the medieval chancel, vaulted on ogives with and a flat chevet, whereas the Protestant altar is in the nave in a lateral axis.
