The construction of the Collegiate Churchof Neuchâtel began at the end of the 12thcentury and was completed in the 13thcentury. The building presents several medieval architectonic styles: Rhenish Romanesque, Burgundy style and Gothic.
Towards the middle of the 19thcentury, the architect Léo Châtelain was commissioned to restore the church. At that time, besides, was built the north tower, which had not been constructed. Châtelain, inspired by the works of Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, proposed a restoration by adding elements, as the rosette on the west façade or spires to both towers, to give the building a neo-Gothic appearance. The last restoration works took place between 2009 and 2013 and included archaeological excavations in the cloister.
