  • This ancient Church, is on the Limmatquai, at the right top of the Münsterbrücke bridge. Annexed to the Church is the Helmhaus which has an archway on the ground floor with some businesses. The Church, with its striking needle is further South, close to the Helmhaus. In its interior there is a stone which is said, was where the martyrs St. Felix and Regula Santa, patron saints of Zürich, died decapitated
