The inside of the church

The Protestant church in St. Moritz Bad is a Protestant - Reformed church under the monument of the canton of Grisons . It is located on Via dal Bagn and is also called the bath church to distinguish it from the Reformed village church .

History and equipment

It was built at the end of the 19th century as an Anglican sacred building in exposed brickwork and with a tower in the shape of a mountain peak on eyelashes , and took into account the heyday of British winter tourism in the Engadine . The church combines Gothic and Romanesque elements in a historicist style .

Inside the church there are three glass paintings by Gian Casty from 1974. The polygonal late Gothic baptismal font , which comes from the old Mauritius church and dates back to 1500, is particularly valuable . The altar was kept in the center of the choir even after the church was transferred to the Reformed . The nave is covered by a wooden barrel vault and has an indicated aisle on the right .

Church organization
