In the town centre this church consecrated by Pope Leo IX in 1049 includes several remarkable Romanesque features: for example XIth C. crypt guarded by a sandstone bear, a porch and a XIIth C. historiated frieze 30m high making it the richest carved portal in Alsace. 

The statue of the Virgin dates from the XVth and XVIth century and the pulpit from 1703.
