P6036269ac The Minstrels's House Glorifies the Virgin Mary
The Minstrels's House is one of the most beautiful House of the town of Ribeauvillé;In the middle ages, this beautiful half-timbered House was the "Pfiffer" (Minstrels) corporation headquarters; Today, it houses a restaurant "Wistub Zum Pfifferhus";
Built in the 15th century, this house is ornate by an oriel, an advanced balcony in carved wood representing the Annunciation where the Virgin Mary faces the Angel Gabriel; In the middle ages, the minstrels used to venerate the birthday of Mary on 8 of September and attended a mass before making the feast having a banquet in this house! It continues nowadays! France Alsace Region Haut-Rhin Department Ribeauville town.
