Schulgasse, Heidelberg, Germany, 69117
In 1712, architect Johann Adam Breunig, who also built the Alte Universität (which is the Universitätsmuseum today), started with the construction of the Jesuitenkirche. After Breunig's death, Francesco Rabaliatti, who was employed at the Mannheim court, finished the facade of the church which strongly resembles the Il Gesù church in Rome. The church was used for many purposes over time: it was used as a military hospital, a university library, and, of course, as an actual church. The interior's appearance today is the result of restoration in the 1970s.
