"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)

Not to be missed
Outside: the window of the apse, surrounded by the 4 evangelists, many sculptures depicting eerie characters and animals (the bearded old man, the lion devouring the lamb, the bear with a cake, etc.), the acroteria, and more.
Inside: the 21-headed capitals, the Gemini of the Zodiac, and throughout December the Baroque nativity scene. "
