Old Cathedral, Linz

This Baroque church has an impressive set of domed towers in the typical onion style for the period and stands proudly near the Hauptplatz square.

Serving as the diocese of Linz, the Cathedral was dedicated to Saint Ignatius and was originally constructed by Jesuits in 1669. Although the exterior is not as lavish as some other European Cathedrals, the towers are still eye-catching and the interior of the church is simply wonderful.

The features of the lavish interior include an ornately decorated wooden pulpit and choir stalls, many pink marble columns and a high altar complete with religious paintings.

The Old Cathedral is a must visit, and is also an interesting building to compare with the New Cathedral streets away.
