Mont Ste-Odile

The most famous pilgrimage destination in Alsace is the Odilienberg. Here the patron saint of the region, St. Odilie, founded a monastery around the year 700. Her tomb can still be found in the medieval Odilien Chapel (11th/12th century). The monastery, whose heyday was in the 12th century, is still a destination for pilgrims from all over the world. The Odilienberg with its monastery lies on the paths of the pilgrims of St. James in Alsace.
