Yes, Cologne has more than one big church and Gross St. Martin is gorgeous in its own right. A curious mix of imposing architecture and minimalist interior, this is a functioning church and you can feel it in the air when visiting. A sanctuary in the middle of the Old Town, the square surrounding the church is also worthy of a wander. Easily found (thanks to its unique towers) close to both the Old Town and the Rhine River.

From 1150 to 1240 was about Roman buildings (sports facilities and warehouses of the 1st century 2nd century) the church of the Benedictine monastery of St. Martin Large. She is especially honored by the great central tower and the epiphany, which still form an important addition to the cathedral towers in Cologne's city panorama accent.

Costruita nel XII secolo, la favolosa Groß St. Martin con la sua torre è uno degli edifici più famosi di Colonia. Le sue fondamenta appartengono all'epoca romana e furono scoperte durante i restauri dopo la guerra, e sotto il coro è ora possibile vedere dove le pareti della chiesa si fondono perfettamente con le pareti di un magazzino romano. Il restauro è durato fino agli anni '80 e l'interno della chiesa è tipico di un luogo di culto in stile romanico, con un'architettura solenne e decorazioni sobrie.

Local from Cologne

Weniger bekannt als der Kölner Dom, gehört aber genauso zur Skyline von Köln dazu.
