Historical Context
 

The parish church is the older construction; portions of this building were constructed in the Romanesque style. During the fourteenth century, the nave was extended, the choir renewed, and a two level nuns' choir added to the structure. The gabled facade on the western front of the nuns' choir mirrored the gabled facade on the south side of the west wing.
