9 Basel Münster Church Façade in Basel, Switzerland

If you look closely at the base of the Basel Münster’s left bell tower you’ll see a patch of white sandstone mixed in among the red. That is part of the original church that was consecrated in 1019. You’ll also see on this St. George Tower a statue of the saint dressed as a knight while slaying a dragon with his sword. Now a Protestant church, it was rebuilt after being partially destroyed by a 1356 earthquake. The final tower with a clock and sundial is called Martinsturm. It was completed in 1500.
