  • The Romanesque church of Saint-Foua is just a stone's throw from another ancient church of Celeste, the Gothic church of St. George. Saint-Foua was erected in the second half of the 12th century, and since 1862 it has been considered a historical monument of France. The original temple was the 11th century chapel, built at the behest of Hildegarde von Eegisheim, the great-grandmother of Emperor Frederick I of Barbarossa. Hildegarda gave the land to Celeste along with the chapel of the Bedekkhtin monks, who in 1152-1190 built a new Romanesque temple. The monks left Celeste in 1424, and the church was taken over by the bishopric of Strasbourg. In 1615, the temple was handed over to the Jesuits, who took up the re-election.
