The [[Convent]] of St Gallen, a perfect example of a great [[Carolingian]] [[monastery]], was, from the 8th century to its [[secularization]] in 1805, one of the most important in Europe. Its [[library]] is one of the richest and oldest in the world and contains precious manuscripts such as the earliest-known architectural plan drawn on [[parchment]]. From 1755 to 1768, the conventual area was rebuilt in [[Baroque]] style. The [[cathedral]] and the library are the main features of this remarkable architectural complex, reflecting 12 centuries of continuous activity.<ref>http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/268</ref>
