  • Linda!
  • Wonder of temple. Originally Romanesque this was built at 1.408. Very close to the Cathedral, that somewhat overshadows their wealth and importance. A stunning altarpiece in stone limestone of the Cologne 15th century, with that boast of thoroughness and talent give an incalculable value to the site. A delight for the eyes. The Gothic tombs of families who paid for the Church, do not have waste. Incredibly beautiful pieces. Visit obliged.

  • Very tiny. The impressive altarpiece, deserves to be in the Cathedral. Only for this reason, it is necessary to visit it. Otherwise it is tiny and sober.

  • A truly spectacular altarpiece! It surprises you when you see it

  • It is inexcusable to not enter to see the altarpiece.
