Built from the end of the 13th century to the beginning of the 14th century, this church is one of Strasbourg's most inspiring buildings. Restored around 1900, its mural paintings go back to the Middle Age.
The church became Protestant in 1524. Then in 1683, when the chancel was given to a Catholic parish, a wall was built behind the jube, dividing the church. After the Catholics' departure in 1893, the furniture in the chancel was kept. The cloister, recently restored and where the remains of columns dating from the 11th century can still be admired, offers a haven of peace.
