St Thomas's Church

Rebuilt at the end of the 12C, this Church has five naves and became a Lutheran cathedral in 1529. It contains the famous mausoleum of Marshal Saxe a masterpiece by Pigalle; France, with weapons, is trying to push away death. This is all very sad since Hercules is sobbing and Love's flame is extinguished. But luckily Holland (a lion), England (a leopard) and Austria (an Eagle) are being beaten hollow.
