St. Mauritius Church, Zermatt
The Catholic church is situated in the main town square and dominates the skyline of Zermatt.
I couldn't find out much about its history, but it was beautiful both on the inside and out.
I loved hearing the bells ringing from my hotel room two blocks away.
The statuary and fittings of the interior of St Maurizius, are baroque and thus very ornate. When I walked in, my first impression was of GOLD. Everything is heavily gilded and extremely rich looking. It really is quite beautiful.
Located in the heart of Zermatt, on the aptly named Kirchplatz (Church Square) is the parish church of St. Mauritius.
The church was built in 1913 and has a tall clock tower which is impressive, though I didn't find the inside particularly memorable.
The church is home to a yodelling mass to mark the start of the Folklore Festival held each year in August.
The tower of the Roman Catholic St. Mauritius Church dominates the city centre of Zermatt.
The church was built in 1913 after plans of the architect Adolf Gaudy. It houses a few altars dating from the 18th century.
