The Temple Neuf


Built on the site of the old Dominican church, it was destroyed in 1870 during the bombing of the town. Its sandstone architecture is in the Romanesque style. On its Northern side you'll find the « Gymnase Jean Sturm » a Secondary School, that replaced the former Secondary School started by the Reformers in 1538, then the university established in 1621. While living in Strasbourg (1538-1541), Jean Calvin celebrated services for French-speaking Protestant refugees in its oratory.
