Church of St. Elizabeth, Marburg

The hospital and pilgrimage church of St. Elizabeth was constructed from 1235 above the grave of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, who died in 1231 and had just been canonized. The church was to promote the cult of Elizabeth. It is composed of a nave of the hall church type, which has a twin-tower façade.
