Discovering Salzburg Cathedral

Where : Salzburg Cathedral

We stopped at the Salzburg Cathedral on our way to Hohensalzburg.  This Cathedral was built around the 17th century and has a beautiful Baroque style.  Seems like this is Serge's idea of most beautiful church he's visited in Europe.

You will find the Cathedral in the Old Town at the end of Getreidegasse or on the way to Hohensalzburg.  This area is quite touristic and a great place to take crafty pictures.  Like most churches in Europe, there is no need to pay to enter.  You can leave a donation if you want to contribute to the upkeep and maintenance. The church is dedicated to Saint Rupert and Saint Virgil, both patron saints of the city and province.

Even if you are not religious, it’s worth to visit it for the art and history of the place.

Finally, nearby areas we suggest to visit. Consider reading:

Recommend: Yes, it’s a really beautiful church with Baroque architecture and the four statues of saints that border the building.

Tips
