Like much of Trier, the imposing fortress like Cathedral has its roots in Roman times. It was built in sections, rather than in one single construction, spanning nearly two millennia. Inside the central chapel is a room built of Roman brick under the direction of Saint Helen. The mother of Constantine I, she is also credited with founding the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. So I've now visited all three of her major churches!

Directions: The cathedral can be easily reached from the central market square.
