This is the most beautiful church in the city. The church was built around a ten-sided dome that dates back to the 7th century, giving the church an unusual look compared to many of city’s churches and cathedrals. The walls lining the church tell a story of ages long past with murals, relics, and mosaics. I often get tired of visiting church after church in Europe, but this church offered something different, which I found appealing.

To a Roman oval building of the 4th In the 11th century and 12 Century chancel with crypt added. Between 1219 and 1227 we moved into the late antique building in a Romanesque Zehneckbau. The Collegiate Church of St. Gereon was thus a unique spatial structure. The old design include wall paintings of the 13th Century chancel and baptistery.

Una delle 12 chiese romaniche di Colonia, la Basilica di San Gereon è anche la più strana. Il motivo per il suo design stravagante è che è stato costruito in quattro fasi in un periodo di due secoli, e le porzioni più recenti sono state semplicemente annesse alle vecchie per formare un meraviglioso guazzabuglio. Dove dovrebbe essere la navata, c'è una cupola decagonale, da vicino puoi vedere come le sue mura furono costruite nelle rovine romane sottostanti.
