Campus Galli is an incredibly beautiful project where a group of people are building a medieval monastery and outbuildings, in the medieval way.
The St. Gallen monastery plan is unique! Despite the many buildings that were then built, no other building plan from the early Middle Ages is known. It is the oldest still existing architectural drawing of the West. The plan was signed by monks before the year 830 AD, on the island of Reichenau in Lake Constance.
The monastery plan with its 52 buildings and many details has a turbulent history. It is made from five parchment leaves. The back was used by a monk about 400 years later to write down the life of St. Maarten. Only because of this story did the plan remain in the library.
Now the plan is used to rebuild the design and you can visit the building project and eat medieval dishes.
