Cathedral, Salzburg

Santino Solari built Salzburg Cathedral from 1614 to 1628, but the eighty-meter west towers were added thirty years later. This church was the first Baroque building north of the Alps. The interior structure and west front were modeled on the Jesuit church of Il Gesù in Rome.

The picture shows the interior of the octagonal dome of Salzburg Cathedral.
