Fribourg and Neuchatel Sights

Eglise Abbatiale (Abbey Church)

Updated 09/18/2012

Fodor's Review

The magnificent 11th-century Eglise Abbatiale, built on the site of an ancient Roman villa, is one of the finest examples of Romanesque art in Switzerland. Of particular note in its austere, restored interior is the impressively engineered barrel vaulting; the frescoes and primitive carvings on the capitals of stone pillars are also of interest. Organ concerts are frequent attractions, and exhibitions are staged in both the church and an adjoining museum.
