The Chapel of St Giles (Ägidienkapelle) in Naumburg was part of the medieval cathedral curia. Today, the 13th-century chapel forms a station along the Southern Route of the Romanesque Road (Straße der Romanik) in Saxony-Anhalt.
The Curia (Kurie) served as a residential and administrative building for the canons of the neighbouring Naumburg Cathedral. It dates back to the 13th century and still offers Romanesque architectural elements.
The Chapel of St Giles
In the pic, you see the Romanesque chapel of the Curia. The former entrance was on the upper floor, which visitors reached by wooden stairs. After removing the stairs, the door has been substituted by an arched curtain window.
The Romanesque Road
Along with the Naumburg Cathedral, the Chapel of St Giles (Ägidienkapelle) forms a station on the Southern Route of the Romanesque Road (Straße der Romanik).
The Romanesque Road is a scenic route in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt linking castles, monasteries and churches built between 950 and 1250.
