  • Raised to the rank of Basilica in 1991, this Romanesque church was built in the 12th century on the site of a sanctuary from the beginning of the 9th century in which was concluded the sharing agreement of the empire of Charlemagne, giving rise to the Treaty of Verdun. The exterior architecture is marked by the high towers on the front and the remarkable round bedside (Rhine) flanked by 2 other towers and surmounted by a gallery pierced with 21 arches to balusters. Inside, the look is from the entrance to the great vaults in elegantly colorful stars. Also admire these works of art: the Chair in 1625 richly decorated sandstone; in the right roadside Marian image Brigitten-Madonna, the double tomb of Sachsenhausen and his wife, as well as 16 paintings on wood of the end of the 15th century.; in the left aisle, the epitaph of the Dean Maternus Gillenfelt; in the chorus 2 tombs of the archbishops of Trier which Kuno II von Falkenstein surmounted by a painting of Me Wilhelm; above the altar of the left brace, a triptych painting dated 1594 a recent restoration has allowed to discover hidden under a piece of the 19th century. After the visit, doing a little tour in the pleasant gardens surrounding the Church.

  • Should you have seen. Beautiful church inside and out. The Church is pretty bright and clean. The Basilica St. Kastor, also called Castor Church, is a Roman Catholic Church in the old town of Koblenz. You should look at the beautiful garden.
