From Erasmus' grave and graves of many nobles and knights, the history of pre, mid, and post reformation comes alive in one place. This was built as a catholic bishops seat, mobbed by reformers in 1529 and is today protestant with elements of both catholic and protestant coming together, graves from as old as the 12th century, towers to climb with amazing views of the city, etc. To see additional ancient wealth and treasure of the pre-reformation artifacts rescued from the church, go to the museum at the Basel Historical Museum at "Barfüsserkirche", where you can see the original bell from 11th century, many figures and items used in this Munster during the Catholic era of the church from 12th - 15th century.
