One of the many things I love about Switzerland is how the Swiss have preserved their history.

The Abbey of Romainmôtier was built between 990 and 1030, according to the plans of the church of Cluny, and on the ruins of a monastery dating back to the 5th and 7th century. The church is one of the oldest Romanesque buildings in Switzerland and houses an early form of the pulpit from the 8th century. The 14th century frescoes and the 15th century choir chairs are also worth seeing. (http://www.myswitzerland.com/en-ch/romainmotier-abbey-town.html)
