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

This incredible little town was built around the beautiful St. Peter and St. Paul cathedral. It pales in comparison to Strasbourg cathedral, but is certainly impressive in it's own right.
