Cloisters St. Johann in Müstair

The Benedictine cloisters and UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. Johann in Val Müstair, in the Swiss region of Graubünden, is a very well kept medieval cloister site from the Carolinger time. The cloister was founded by Charles the Great. Originally, it was a monastry, but since the 12th Century, it has been used as a Benedictine convent.

In 1983, the cloister became a UNESCO World Heritage site. The most important features are the largest early medieval cycle from the 9th Century and the Roman pictures from the 12th / 13th century in the cloister chapel. The face of the oldest, once painted monumental statue of Emperor Charles the Great is very impressive. The Planta tower, built around 957, is renowned as the oldest secular building in the Alpine region.
