Wettingen Abbey

Founded in the 13C by Count Henri de Rapperswil, this former Cistercian Abbey now houses a cantonal school. The Gothic cloister contains arcades decorated with stained glass windows, dating back to the 13-17C. Statues of monks and abbots decorate the galleries. The interior of the convent church, rebuilt from 1517, has fine Baroque decoration.
