In the year 1781, when the former church in Zell was declared derelict, the building of a new church was commissioned. Between 1786 and 1793, before the gates of Medieval Zell, in the garden of the old kurtrierische Kellnerei (the Electorate of Trier wine taxation authority), the Baroque church of St. Peter was erected. It is regarded as one of the finest classical style churches in the Mosel region.
The people of Zell are proud of a small reliquary of St. Peter, patron saint of their church. This is a container with a foot bone dating back to the time around 1180 – 1190. The most valuable item of ornamentation is, however, the figure of the Holy Mother from the 15th century, located in the left side altar.
Before entering the Catholic parish church of St. Peter, you should give an eye to the mosaic on the church wall. Here, the history of the town of Zell is portrayed with its coat of arms, its partner towns and its own cultural monuments .
