Photographer's Note

Yesterday I visited - once again - my favourite city here in Germany, Bonn - and this time I visited the cloister of the basilica "St. Cassius and St. Florentius". It was a dull and rainy autumn day, but I hope, my photo shows a bit of the remarkable atmosphere of this place.

The antecessor of this collegiate church was a roman necropolis of the second century, which was replaced in the 6th century by a hall which already was used as a church. It was built amongst others out of the rests of the roman altar building. At the end of the 7th century this place was linked with the legend of the martyrs Cassius and Florentius.

The today's church was begun in the 11th century and it was inaugurated in 1153. Today the basilica comprehends Romanesque and Gothic elements and the interior is affected by the Baroque.
The cloister also originates from the 11th century. It is a real oasis of calm amidst the lively city.
