Architectural structures

Notre-Dame-de-la-Nativité is the main church in Saverne, Bas-Rhin, France. It was first built in the 12th century as a parish church before being re-consecrated to saint Bartholomew in the late 13th century. It was converted into a collegiate church of Augustinian Canons Regular in the 14th and 15th century and held that status by 1485 at the latest. It is now the town's parish church and has been listed a historic monument since 1977.
