An ancient Gothic church built at the end of the 15th century, Eglise des Dominicains is no longer a place of worship, but is still a major architectural work of the mendicant order. The "Altarpiece of the Dominicans" is now on display at the Unterlinden museum, but a notable piece by the same artist remains at this location--Martin Schongauer's masterpiece "Madonna of the Rosebush," painted in 1473.
