Abbey Cathedral of St Gall, UNESCO World Heritage Site

St.Gallen, Switzerland

The Abbey Cathedral of St Gall, the abbey library and the surrounding monastery buildings - in short the St. Gallen Abbey District - was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. This magnificent baroque complex, known far beyond the borders of Switzerland, rose from a small hermitage founded in 612 by the monk Gallus in “the green wilderness between Lake Constance and Säntis”.
