The Chapelle Saint-Léon was constructed in neo-Roman style on the site of the former castle keep. Consecrated in 1894, the chapel is dedicated to Pope Saint-Léon IX.On the vaulted ceiling are painted medallions by the artist Martin, in 11th century style, depicting 7 scenes from the life of Saint-Léon, while the stained-glass windows, dating from 1895, symbolise the Saints of Alsace, many of the Counts of Eguisheim.
