Welcome to Bechtheim basilica

The basilica consecrated to St. Lambert of Liège (635 - 700) from the 11th century was formerly owned by the Augustinian canons at Mount Aegidius in Liège. Special features of the three-aisled basilica include a choir platform and a crypt with barrel vaults, as well as wall paintings from the 14th century. During the Middle Ages, it served as a pilgrimage church. From 1684 to 1910, the basilica was used as a simultaneum church. It is one of the most significant Romanesque village churches in Rheinhessen.
