Gothic styling originally from the 1300's. Not as ornate as other churches, but nonetheless very beautiful. Clock tower has two clock faces one facing town, and the other facing Wertheim Castle, so the castle would always no what time it was.

In this external rather ornamented but interior rather bare church one can notice he "Wertheimer Madonna" from 1325 (entrance holy Spirit Chapel) traditionally proposed as a loving mother. The prayer room still contains frescoes of the altar Mensa and "three Holy maidens" from its construction...More
