Photographer's Note

I have promised to post one photo of famous abbey church St. Blasius a St Blasien's Benedictine monastery which was mentioned for the first time in the 9th century.

The abbey church as you can see on the photo was rebuilt in the Early Classic (Baroque) style between 1768 and 1783 after the original abbey church was burnt down in 1768.

The church was modeled after the Pantheon in Rome with an enormous dome 46 m diameter and 63 m high (the third-largest in Europe north of the Alps).

The effects of another catastrophic fire in 1874 were only finally remedied in the 1980s.

If you do like to see the interior, please open the following link:
