The light radiates through marble slabs


Schlösslistrasse 2
6045 Meggen


The striking building of the St. Pius Church in Meggen is characterised by its windowless façade. The cube, 13 metres high, was designed by Franz Füeg and built from 1964-66. The light falls through 888 translucent marble panels that characterise the façade of the steel structure. Above the slightly sloping roof, the 40-metre high free bell tower rises into the air.
