Church of the Jesuits

Propsteigasse 10, 4500 Solothurn

The Jesuit Church is thought to be one of the best examples of baroque architecture in Switzerland.

It was built between 1680 and 1689 according to the principles of the master builders of the Vorarlberg region. It is designed as a unified baroque space and features incredible Italian-style stucco. The high altar is made of marbled wood and shows an image of the Assumption of Mary by Franz Carl Stauder.
