Beautiful gothic Roman Catholic Church in the center of town. Was built in 11th century. There’s also an old building a famous monk used to study in there.

Have been in a lot of churches since moving to Germany. Really enjoyed visiting here. Simple. Beautiful windows. Loved the 'cloister' and 'chapel'. Worth a visit.

This church is not on any tourist guide but should be, here the Bible was translated into French in the 8th century, and it's foundations are from the 7th century
