  • The Jesuits built the Church between 1669 and 1683 following plans of Pietro Francesco Carlone. It was erected near the former College of the Jesuits in the extreme south of Hauptplatz. The Church was originally called the Church of Ignatius (German: Ignatiuskirche). and was dedicated to St. Ignatius Loyola, who founded the order of the Jesuits. The exterior of the Church is relatively simple, with two towers on each side of the front door, covered with onion domes. The interior is decorated with lavish Baroque style, with pink marble columns. It is interesting to discover. Beethoven touch in this Cathedral. Worth the visit.

  • It's Church was built in the late 17th century, and the old cathedral. I would think a bit smaller compared to the new Cathedral, is a luxurious altar and impressive marble columns. A little off the main street and walk through the narrow streets.

  • At the entrance to the visitor operates the atmosphere of purity and peace. The inside is impressive contrast white paint of the walls and darker objects-pulpits, statues, paintings, and religious artifacts.
