Arriving in Ottobeuren, we decided to park the car in the town square and have a look at the huge Basilica overlooking the town square.

The Basilica, built between 1737 -1766, to me was an unusual shade of green, with pink/lavender columns. It is part of the Benedictine monastery which was founded in 764, and is recognized as one of the most ornate Baroque and Rococo buildings in world.
It lived up to this! It is stunning inside, one of the most beautiful Basilica's I have been inside.

A must see!
