Interesting that the temple was turned into a catholic place of baptism. Faunt now has money in it.

Quaint community church just outside San Marino's centro storico.

a dead Christ with St. Francis and Apollonia. On each vault are newer frescos representing different saints. It is a very modest interior, well lighted. The exterior is constructed of sandstone blocks with a cloister and a quadrangular bell tower. Four columns, resting on two walls, support the porch roof. There is a single arched entry portal.

This single nave church, built in 1361, has a 14th century cross in the apse from the original church. On the altar is a painting from the 15th century depicting a dead Christ with St. Francis and Apollonia. On each vault are newer frescos representing different saints. It is a very modest interior, well lighted. The exterior is constructed of sandstone blocks with a cloister and a quadrangular bell tower. Four columns, resting on two walls, support the porch roof.

Petersberg Citadel

The Petersberg Citadel is one of the largest extant early-modern citadels in Europe and covers the whole north-western part of the Erfurt city centre. It was built after 1665 on Petersberg hill and was in military use until 1963. It dates from a time when Erfurt was ruled by the Electors of Mainz and is a unique example of the European style of fortress construction. Beneath the citadel is an underground maze of passageways that can be visited on guided tours organised by Erfurt Tourist Office.

The citadel was originally built on the site of a medieval Benedictine Monastery and the earliest parts of the complex date from the 12th century. Erfurt has also been ruled by Sweden, Prussia, Napoleon, the German Empire, the Nazis, and post-World War II Soviet occupying forces, and it was part of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). All of these regimes used Petersberg Citadel and had an influence on its development. The baroque fortress was in military use until 1963. Since German reunification in 1990, the citadel has undergone significant restoration and it is now open to the public as a historic site.
