The 11th-century St. Maria im Kapitol is the largest of Cologne's Romanesque churches. Although it suffered damage in World War II, some of its centuries-old artworks survived. Don't miss the intricately designed wooden doors from the 11th century, a plague crucifix from the 14th century, or the "Virgin on a Throne" from the 13th century. The crypt displays foundations of a Roman temple from the first (yes, FIRST!) century and of a previous church from 690 AD.

Enjoyed seeing this... A nice little visit. The church is set in a quiet little area, surrounded by some quaint houses. An attractive church.

This was a hidden spot in Cologne. Very quiet but beautiful. The signs inside said they only have 400 active members so donations from tourists are very helpful with church upkeep. Quite impressive from inside, though not as impressive from the outside.
Fine romanesque cloisters
