Romanesque St. Peter and St. Paul's Church

More than the few ruins that remain, history itself played a major part in forming Rosheim, one of the staging posts on Alsace's Romanesque Road.This 12th C church is one of the finest examples of Romanesque art. The sculpted bestiary and decorated capitals give a magnificent idea of the style and its origins. It is the most complete and most typical Romanesque architectural monument in Alsace.Make a point of visiting this superb historical church as you explore our region. (Guided visits for groups)
