OTTONIAN ARCHITECTURE - Maria Laach Abbey 1093-1177, the west end with the paradisium from c. 1225, Germany. Despite its long construction time the well-preserved basilica with its six towers is considered to be one of the most beautiful Romanesque buildings in Germany. Many former changes to the buildings carried out in Gothic (e. g. steep tower roofs) and Baroque style (e. g. wider windows) have been re-altered to Romanesque style.
