St. Gallen is famous for its Oriel windows (windows that project out of the wall).
Its other claim to fame is that it houses the Stiftsbibliothek, a library that contains many of the oldest books in Europe. Rumor has it that Umberto Eco used it as his inspiration for the library in "The Name of the Rose".
