Adam and Eve Statues Grace the Entrance
Jul 2015 • Couples
Marienkapelle is located in Wurzburg, Germany and was built in the Gothic style in the 1400s. The name literally translates to “Chapel of St. Mary” and is dedicated to Jesus’ mother. The exertion is read and white and was built upon a razed synagogue. The figures of Adam and Eve can be found at the south entrance of the church. An interesting tidbit of information is that this church was this was the merchants’ answer to the prince-bishop’s cathedral. There are a number of shops around the church that were built to supplement the church’s income. Its interior was not as magnificent as other churches I have visited but is worth a visit if you are in Wurzburg.
