  The Dom
by myriam_c
 
 

Salzburg's Dom is probably the city's most significant piece of church architecture and its ecclesiastical center. With its magnificent fašade and mighty dome it represents the most impressive early Baroque edifice north of the Alps.
The original building dates back to 774, was converted after 1181 into the only five-aisled Romanesque basilica in the German-speaking world. In 1598 it was almost entirely demolished and rebuilded between 1614 and 1628.
