Carolingian Sculpture in Chur

The city of Chur has many highlights of ecclesiastical building activity.

The first bishop’s church (5th century), the so-called Tellocathedral (8th century) and the new building (13th century) are medieval monuments.

The marble are from the quarry of Laas (Vintschgau).

The marble statues of Chur, not far from Müstair, are a unique cultural heritage.
