Thalbach Convent, Bregenz

Thalbach Convent, Bregenz (must see)

The first chapel of Thalbach priory dates back to 1436. In 1575 it became a monastery. Some of the monastery’s latest structures were built from 1609 to 1677 in the early Baroque style. In 1592 the precious image of the Blessed Virgin, "Sedes Sapientiae," was gifted to it. This late 13th century statue is one of the most significant works in the Bodensee area. It also has frescoes and wooden sculptures of saints. Formerly a home for Dominican nuns, today it serves as a school and hosts the Catholic Women’s Organization.
