Show sight on map

The Trinity Church is a church building in Constance on Lake Constance. Since it was built in the late 13th century for the local monastery of the Augustinian hermits, it is also called the Augustinian Church. It functioned as a monastery church until the dissolution of the monastery in 1802 and from the 17th century also as a garrison church, then as a hospital church, old Catholic church and today ecumenical "city church". Due to its harmonious combination of simple Gothic mendicant order architecture, late Gothic frescoes and Baroque picture and stucco decoration, it is one of the most important sacred monuments in the city and one of the sights of Constance.
