Wettingen Abbey

Founded in the 13C, this former Cistercian Abbey now houses a cantonal school. The Gothic cloister is adorned with arcades whose stained glass windows date back to the 13-17C. Statues of monks and abbots decorate the galleries. The interior of the convent church, rebuilt from 1517, is rich in baroque decoration. The former women's house has been turned into a restaurant.
