Konstanz Minster or Konstanz Cathedral
In German: Das Konstanzer Münster Unserer Lieben Frau
The first mention of a church dedicated to the Virgin Mary was in 615. The church was upgraded over the years to a cathedral. It collapsed in 1052 and a new one built on the same ground. The next 300 years a tower was constructed, then another. A fire destroyed a tower and parts of the church as well as 96 houses. They rebuild the tower and made the church bigger. In 1955 Pope Pius XII raised the Cathedral to a papal Basilica Minor.
Is that the Pope??
Graves inside the church
