Description

Built between the 13th and the 16th centuries, this parish church welcomed Martin Bucer in 1522, who preached in the local language. In 1534, the Reformation was introduced for good in the town’s parishes. Admire its old 14th century frescos, its 11th century carved window lintel representing the Lamb of God, its remarkable metal cross as well as its stained glass windows designed by Gérard Lardeur.
