The Pfullendorf parish church is part of the Upper Swabian Baroque street. The simple exterior hardly suggests the baroque splendour of the interior. The church was built as a three-nave late Gothic pillar basilica with a flat wooden ceiling. The church tower is considered unique in the history of art because of its curved and pierced pyramid. The Patron Saint of the church and town is St. James the Elder. For many centuries many pilgrims have therefore stopped in Pfullendorf.
