Abbey library in St.Gallen close to Lake Constance

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”.
