Cistercian abbey, Maulbronn

The Cistercian church at Maulbronn is entirely Romanesque, but is surrounded by monastic buildings demonstrating increasing Gothic influence. The porch of the church possesses a vault with ribs that all have round arches. Since the diagonal, blind, and arcade arches are all of different width, their diameter is also different, and therefore they all begin at different levels.
