The beautiful Catholic cathedral sits high on the hill in the town centre of Chur in Switzerland. It is a beautifully kept building which unfortunately, I could find no history of during my visit. I was fortunate enough however, to be there in time for Mass on Saturday evening and although I did not understand a word of the homily or the readings, I enjoyed it immensely.
The Kathedrale has some very interesting statuary and a wonderful Blessed Sacrament Chapel behind and under the main altar. My favourite staue was what I would call that of the grim reaper, perhaps I'm wrong here, but you can judge for yourself.

Address: Chur, Switzerland
Directions: High on the hill overlooking the city.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
