The Baroque exterior of St. Peter's Church conceals architectural treasures inside. The interior of this Roman Catholic church features exquisite golden stucco, pews adorned with cherubic heads, and striking gold and silver statues. Built between 1701 and 1733, the church's ornate construction includes the work of many artists. Once inside, notice the frescoes in the turreted dome. Around the dome, examine depictions of the four evangelists and four fathers of the church. Enjoy the detailing on the gilded ornate pulpit and the golden representation of the Holy Trinity above.

  • What a spectacular church. We attended the 11:00 sunday mass in Latin. The singing was celestial. I cannot get over the beauty of this place of worship. I did some very intense praying there. 
  • This church was a rebuilt one since the original one had been burnt. It was really an impressive church, both from outside and internally. You could see beautiful paintings and statues inside as well....  read more »
  • Was able to tour the church prior to going into the Crypt for a ticketed chamber music concert. Great two for one evening stop and hte concert was fantastic! 
  • Upon the first step inside the church...WOW. simply impressive! Was lucky to meet the organ concert during our visit
  • A truly beautiful church. Nothing of its kind will be built again in our time. The sculptures are fine works of art.
  • If you walk around, go inside! It's so calm there.
  • Hidden impressive beautiful but kind of dark atmospherical church. Highly recommended to go there.
  • Brilliant architecture, well worth a visit.
