An ancient Gothic church built at the end of the 15th century, Eglise des Dominicains is no longer a place of worship, but is still a major architectural work of the mendicant order. The "Altarpiece of the Dominicans" is now on display at the Unterlinden museum, but a notable piece by the same artist remains at this location--Martin Schongauer's masterpiece "Madonna of the Rosebush," painted in 1473.

Eglise des Dominicains reviews
My 3 star rating means neutral, as the huge Dominican Church in downtown Colmar is closed for visits. You can admire its grandeur only from outside where's a kind of flea market on the square.

This huge church in the center of old Colmar is well worth a visit to marvel at the workmanship of builders from so long ago. The space is less ornate than many from that era so allows the visitor...

Big church locate in the middle of the city near saint martin church .Entre fee for2€ /person but inside nothing to see much just a drawing picture of Madona of the rose bush and a little
Too crowded in high season. But for a good reason. Annecy could compete with the best of France's flowering villages, which is remarkable given that it is a sizable city. Driving into and out of town in summer might cost you an hour each.
We were there in December, so the Christmas Village crowds were at a high. The church was such a beautiful structure, but too crowded to get inside. This village redeemed my feelings about France (not a fan of Paris) with only one rude restaurant owner who clearly did not like Americans. The rest of the folks were so sweet and cheery.
The Church of the Dominicans (Église des Dominicains), is a major work of the architecture of the mendicant orders, that began construction in 1283. The Dominicans who arrived in 1278, were driven out of the city temporarily in 1330. Since 1973, it houses "The Virgin at the Buisson de Roses" (La Vierge au buisson de roses), the masterpiece of Martin Schongauer.
Beautiful church, located 200m north-west of the remarkable St. Martin's Church.
