St. Maria im Kapitol, Cologne

4.5
The 11th-century St. Maria im Kapitol is the largest of Cologne's Romanesque churches. Although it suffered damage in World War II, some of its centuries-old artworks survived. Don't miss the intricately designed wooden doors from the 11th century, a plague crucifix from the 14th century, or the "Virgin on a Throne" from the 13th century. The crypt displays foundations of a Roman temple from the first (yes, FIRST!) century and of a previous church from 690 AD.

  • St. Maria im Kapitol is an ancient Romanian church. The place provides lot of greenery away from the crowd.  more »
  • A very nice church, although in the middle of the center and yet secluded. A beautiful former "cross"and a garden is located in front of it. The church is simple, but also very beautiful to celebrate.

  • This was a good visit. This is a quiet place to enjoy the garden in the cloister. The building is well cared for. Please bear in mind that this is a practicing church, and there frequent services. Please just check the signs before going in. Easy access by tram and a short walk.
  • Wonderful place with long history. Unfortunately it suffered during WWII, but it was rebuilt. Church is located outside strict city centre, but I believe it is worth seeing. Church provides little leaflets describing the important monuments inside
