St Gallen is a north-eastern Swiss city dating back to the seventh century. With good transport links to the neighbouring countries of Germany and Austria, and a setting which makes it the gateway to the Alps, St Gallen is a major centre for tourists and visitors to northern Europe. One of the main tourist attractions in the city is the Abbey of St Gall, the library which contains books dating back as far as the ninth century, and which has been named as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. There are, however, a further twenty-seven sites within the city listed as Swiss heritage sites of national interest, amongst them the former Dominican Abbey of St Katharina and the Catholic parish church of St Maria.
