Take a tour of Great St. Martin Church in Cologne, Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. The Great St. Martin Church stands tall over the Rhine River in Cologne, Germany. It was built between 1150 and 1250 on what was originally an island in the middle of the river. The church is a Romanesque Catholic style building, and was formerly a Benedictine monastery. Architecturally, the church features an impressive example of a triconch, which forms a cloverleaf around the crossing. Although the church was badly damaged in World War II, it was fully restored by 1985. Today the church can be found in Cologne´s Old Town. Currently, the church is open to visitors, and houses a branch of the Monastic Fraternities of Jerusalem.
