XNUMXth century Romanesque St Jacques Church
Romanesque jewel of Sundgau, the church dates from 1144. Designed by Count Frédéric 1er de Ferrette as a burial site for himself and his family. Classified as a historic monument, the church is today the oldest in Alsace dedicated to St Jacques le Majeur. The pilgrims' path to Compostela passed through Feldbach, the crossroads of many ancient roads. These pilgrims came largely from the Palatinate, passing through Strasbourg. The restored church was officially inaugurated on July 3, 1977 by Mgr Brand Auxiliary Bishop, now Archbishop of Strasbourg.
