The Florinuskirche (Baselgia San/Sonch Flurin) in Ramosch is the second largest reformed church in the canton of Graubünden after the Churer Martinskirche. It has a capacity of almost 450 people and, in its current form, is based on a new building completed in 1522.

Description

Formerly, the sacral building served as a pilgrimage church, to which people made pilgrimages because of the legend of a pastor named Florinus, who had been pastor in Ramosch in the seventh century and worked miracles. The name does not go back to St. Florian von Lorch.

The Florinus Church is a late Gothic church building. Remarkable is the wall-tabernacle on the left side of the choir room.

In 1499 during the Swabian War, the church was looted by the Austrians and partially destroyed. The church underwent several renovations: in 1522 with the new building, 1750, 1805 and 1907. In 1926, the unsightly and only makeshift tower helmet, which had replaced the destroyed tower together with the bells after the great Ramosvillage fire of 16 July 1880, was removed and the present one was put on.

The FlorinusKirche is a cantonal monument. It is open to the public throughout.

After years of the pastoral community with Tschlin, Ramosch has been merged with the other parishes on the territory of the political community of Valsot since 1 January 2013 and belongs to the Colloquium VIII Engiadina Bassa - Val Müstair.
