The Benedictine monastery of Fulda (in what is now Hesse, Germany), was founded in 744 by Saint Sturm, a disciple of Saint Boniface, as one of Boniface's outposts in the reorganization of the church in Germany, and a base from which missionaries accompanied Charlemagnes armies in their political and military campaign to destroy Heathen Saxony.
The city centre is dominated by the so called Baroque District. The largest buildings there are the basilica and the palace of the prince bishop.
