Fuggerei: Church Of St Mark
The little catholic church, situated next to the main entrance from Jacoberstraße, was begun in 1581. It has been redesigned a couple of times, last time during the repairs of the damages caused by World War II bombs. Renaissance and baroque pieces of the interior have survived.
The Fuggerei employed a priest of ist own who was also doing the job of the teacher in the settlement’s school.
After World War II, the Southern gable of the church was decorated with a sundial bearing the merchants’ Motto „Nütze die Zeit“ (Make the most of your time).
Mittlere Gasse 13 is the only house of the Fuggerei where the original construction is preserved. The apartment on the ground floor contains historical furniture and offers an impression how housing in the Fuggerei originally was like. Next-door house No. 14 hosts a small exhibition about the Fugger family, the foundation and the history of the Fuggerei.
Hoher Dom - outside: the Gothic portal
Unlike the Romanesque portal of the previous tip, the Gothic portal has normal wooden doors but shows off a wonderful decorated gable. All Gothic churches of Europe portrays scenes from the Bible or the Evangelium on the gable of the portal(s). This was done in order to teach the Word of God also to the several illitterates. These sculptures were sometimes looming (as it is the case in Notre-Dame de Paris) in order to let people understand that they would be damned if they didn't follow the divine message.
