This Jesuit Church Is One Of The Best Baroque Buildings Of Switzerland.

The Jesuit Church built between 1680 and 1689, 
with impressive and magnificent stucco applications, presumably from plans by Jesuit Brother Heinrich Mayer drawn up according to the principles of the Vorarlberg master builders for a baroque single space. 
The high altar from 1704 has monumental pillars which act as a frame for Franz Carl Stauder's painting of the Virgin Mary's Ascension.
