The Churches

Guided tours


Worth seeing - the eleven churches and chapels in Solothurn. The mighty Cathedral of St. Ursus is an importan­t monument. The Jesuit church is described as one of the most beautiful baroque monuments in Switzerland. The St. Peter's chapel displays post-gothic elements with a choir closed on three sides and lancet windows. The Franciscan church, formerly the monastery church of the Franciscan monks, continues to serve as a place of worship today.
