Protestant church


After the Reformation, many Protestants fled from Selestat and only came back during the 19th century. They were given the former Franciscan church (« l'église des Récollets »), dating from 1280. The present church, with a neo-Gothic front, still has the relics of the chancel and sacristy. On its side, you may note an apse with five sides with a remarkable keystone. Its steeple has a flamboyant spire with 140 sculpted elements. At the entrance, three busts of the Rathsamhausen knights were added in 2001. Inside, you'll find a medallion of Martin Bucer, a Reformer, who was born in this town.
