"Sts. Peter & Paul Cathedral" Top 5 Page for this destination Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul Tip by indre_dee

 
 

Built in 1408, the main point of interest of this cathedral is that it is the only Gothic church with a basilica floor-plan in the entire country. In 1921 in order to mark the importance of the cathedral it was designated a basilica. Today the cathedral boasts nine separate altars with the high-Baroque main altar being the central focus. The cathedral/basilica is also the final resting place of two politically active, religious writers.
