Rebuilt after the war

A must visit if you are interested in this type of structure. A lot of work has gone into rebuilding this place after the 2nd World War.

Nice for a quick visit. Also named St John on the Stone. It's a Catholic Church with buildings here dating back to 1300's. Worth a quick visit. Free entry. Nazi's kept political prisoners in the adjacent buildings during WWII.

The church originally serving the monastery and its hospice complex. Nothing striking about the church externally but it is very beautiful inside and set in the pleasant area... More

I loved this church and the beautiful stained glass, so peaceful and well worth a visit. We were searching for the Petrusse Express train and couldn't find it, but instead entered into the peace and quiet of this wonderful church.

Beautiful and astonishing interior. Well preserved over time. It is so very quiet that one will get lost in time. A good place to sit and search one's soul. If you love history, this is one place to visit.

This is a lovely church, high and light, with splendid tall columns and a feeling of worship. In a busy city, it is good to spend time here to reflect and pray.

This lovely Church, which dates back to the seventeeth century, is tucked away on Rue Munster, next to the river. Whilst not overly ornate compared to other European Catholic Churches, the interior is beautiful with it's vaulted ceiling and baroque altar. Don't miss the revered 'Black Madonna' icon in the side chapel. When I vsited I had the church all... More

We stepped inside only briefly and I don't know the full history, but this was one of many beautiful Churches in Luxembourg City.
