Saint-Quirin, surrounded by the Vosges hills, has earned the Most Beautiful Village in France label, with its idyllic environment and fountains, including a miraculous spring said to have healing powers.
This peaceful, pretty village surrounded by greenery has a historic heritage that dates back to the Gallo-Roman era, as evidenced by the archaeological site of La Croix Guillaume in the forest, a genuine hamlet from that period. There the public can see traces of housing, economic activities and worship on display.
Its little cobbled streets lead to its priory church, with three onion-shaped steeples that were originally built in the 13th century. It was rebuilt in the Baroque and 18th-century styles. This very original church has two square towers where the bells are kept, connected to each other by a footbridge.
With its 75 certified or listed buildings, houses and farms, religious monuments and chapels, Saint-Quirin is un unmissable attraction that you can explore with an audioguide, available at the Tourist Office.
