  • The Protestant church of the Reformed Church was originally the chapel of the hospice founded in the thirteenth century by the Hospitaller Order of the Holy Spirit. This Gothic building has an impressive and remarkable gallery of carved wood decoration that absolutely must not be missed. The place also served as a mixed school with Protestant and Jewish communities in the city at the dawn of the twentieth century, a sign of bienpensante tolerance.
  • The sobriety of Protestantism gives this place of worship and collection an exceptional dimension. Do not hesitate to make a detour in the course leading to the tower of the Holy Spirit, you will discover a masterpiece of carpentry. I highly recommend this place because it is at this very place that I found the Holy Spirit by sealing my union with Corinne, my wife.
