Sightseeing in Triesen - what to see. Complete travel guide

The city is located in a picturesque piedmont area and is considered one of the oldest settlements in the country. During the Middle Ages here lived the nobles. They were building their villas in the beautiful woods and forests of this place, on the tops of hills that feature wonderful views.
The city is divided into an old and a new one; the old part is situated on a hill and this place will be surely very interesting to tourists as here have remained numerous old buildings. Church of St. Gallus built in the 13th century is one of them. Five centuries after its building the church had to be closed because the incorrect location of the basement has created the danger of collapsing walls. The shrine remained abandoned until the middle of the 19th century, when the famous architect Wegmuller has made its full restoration. Today the church is decorated with beautiful paintings and stained glass, and there is also a font of great beauty made of black marble. Only several sculptures have left from the old church.
Another religious landmark is located nearby. This is Chapel of St. Mamertusa. It was founded back in the 9th century; later a tower has been added to it. The main decoration of the church is a triptych made in the Gothic style. During the restoration works in 1967 beautiful murals were discovered on the walls of the church. These murals are created in 14 - 15 centuries. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
You should definitely visit St. Mary's Chapel, which was completed in 1654. You can see an image of death on the altar of the chapel.
