This is an amazing church with the biggest foot print in comparison to the size of downtown St. gallen. It is in an incredible condition and absolutely amazing to be inside and see the details and the quality of the building.

This church is adjacent to the Cathedral but a totally different interior. Strong geometric painting on the walls, stars in the sky and one of the most beautiful organs I have seen for a church. If your going to look at the cathedral make sure...More
