I took a couple of photos of this building to emphasize the date.  I was fascinated by how old some of the buildings were.

The guide told us that the pulpit was in the middle of the church for sound reasons since they didn’t have audio systems in the 1500’s.  Also, the pastor could look down on a particular person he might have in mind.

In our next installment, we will take a boat ride up the river and take a cog railway up the Alps.
