Romanesque style church, more beautiful on the outside and sober on the inside.

An absolutely stunning Romanesque church (I would say Norman, but that was just the period on British history).

Very beautiful Romanesque church in the center of Rosheim. Well maintained. Quiet place that calls for contemplation. Regularly the church hosts exhibitions, small concerts. Its square is also used during events organized by the city and its associations: Venetian carnival, Christmas market,...

A wonderful house of Christian worship. Please enter with respect. It is quite an architectual historical place but also a site of active religious practice. It should be admired. Yet visitors should open their hearts and minds to the fact that this isnt just a beautiful stone monument. It serves a lively congregation.

St. Martin Rotunda

The Chapel of St. Martin is the only completely preserved Romanesque building in Vyšehrad and one of the oldest in Prague. In was built around 1100 in the eastern part of the fortified outer ward. Between 1100 and 1300, the Rotrunda was surrounded by a cemetery. The building survived the Hussite Wars and was used as the municipal prison of the Town of the Vyšehrad Hill.

During the Thirty Years’ War, it was used as gunpowder storage, from 1700 to 1750, it was renovated and reconsecrated. In 1784, the chapel was closed passed to the military management which kept using it as a warehouseand a cannon-amunition manufacturing facility. In 1841, it was meant to be demolished to give way to the construction of a new road through Vyšehrad. Eventually, only the original western entrance was walled up and replaced with a new one in the sountren side. The dilapidating Rotunda subsequently served as a shelter for the poor.
