  • An impressive Romanesque church are rarely seen. So pure in their style, it is a feast for the eyes. 1000 years have received in an impressive way. The crypt, which is really great and located below the transept, is impressive. It is not surprising that the Cathedral belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage site.

  • Passing by to speyer we call the attention this huge building which we decided to go, from afar it looks imposing and inside leaves you stunned by its immense look. It is not paid by the entry but you can take tours inside and also buy candles. Recommended, if you are going to speyer you can not miss it.
