Romanesque Road

St. Sebastian romanische TürmeThe second St. Sebastian church was built as Romanesque basilica in 1170. After several fires it was transformed into a Gothic hall church in the 14th and 15th century. The original outline, the towers and the transept remained Romanesque though. As a part of the Romanesque Road the church and it's many valuable exhibits form the Middle Ages and modern times are still a marvel.
