An amazing pink sand stone funeral monument stands near Église Saint-Pierre-Saint-Paul. It has a triangular base. On side (first photo) is carved :

Passant, révère ce tombeau. Je renferme les dépouilles mortelles de M. Anne Elisabeth, Baronne de Ried, née à Strasbourg le 5 juillet 1750, morte à Obernai le 27 mars 1822. RIP.

On another side it bears a coat of arm with a dog jumping and the same dog arises on top of a crown. This monument was ordered by the brother of the Baronne.
