back to overview

When elector Karl Philipp moved his seat of residence from Heidelberg to Mannheim in the year 1720, the Jesuits also moved into the city. Until then Mannheim had bee predominantly protestant. In 1727 the Elector granted the Jesuit Order a site to the west of Mannheim Palace. Karl Philipp shouldered the construction cost of the monumental building complex that emerged over the following decades. The plans were drawn up by Italian architect Allessandro Gallo di Bibiena.
