Karlskirche - St Charles Church, Vienna: 101 reviews and 193 photos
During the Black Plague, emperor Carl VI chose to build this massive church in honor of Borromäus, the plague's patron saint. Fischer von Erlach, the best of the time, designed this Barque church and in 1714, building began.
The alter is really cool when the sunlight comes through, illuminating the frescos of the dome and everything in general. Outside there was a nice pond. Definitely worth the trek over.
