Saint Michel's Church, Luxembourg City

Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Featuring a fairytale-like Romanesque exterior, Saint Michel's Church is one of the oldest religious buildings in Luxembourg. The building's history dates back to 987, when the Count of Luxemburg erected a small chapel within his castle grounds. The present church combines a Romanesque facade with Gothic structural elements and Baroque interior decorations. Notice the pointed arches in the nave, large stained glass windows, a number of religious sculptures, and the huge Assumption of the Virgin painting mounted upon the Baroque altar.
