The striking Chapel of the Holy Cross is situated right in the centre of St Peter's Graveyard.
It is Romanesque in design and is thought to date back to the 15th century. Unfortunately I was unable to go in, but there was plenty to see on the outside in any case. The setting amidst the beautifully kept graves of the oldest cemetery in Salzburg is really tranquil. I was quite taken with it.

Address: St Petersfreidhof, Salzburg
Directions: Enter from the front of the cemetery or by the back entrance by the old mill near the funicular station.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
