Protestant St. Stephen's Church

The Protestant St. Stephen's Church is the main Reformed church of the city of Mulhouse in Alsace, France. Because of its central location on the main square of Mulhouse, the Place de la Réunion, and its 97 meter high bell tower (the highest steeple in the department of Haut-Rhin), it is sometimes referred to as the "Cathedral of Mulhouse" . The church was designed by the city architect Jean-Baptiste Schacre, who also designed the large Catholic St. Stephen's Church.
Until 1858, the former parish church of St. Stephen stood at the location of the current building. The originally late Romanesque building from the 12th century was expanded at the beginning of the 14th century in the Gothic style. A substantially higher choir was added to the nave. In 1510, the Romanesque bell tower was remodelled in the style of the Renaissance
