It is also known as Virgil Cathedral, after the man who first ordered its construction. It is framed in German Baroque style, although the start of its construction dates from the 8th century AD, when it possibly would have been the same place of worship for the earlier Germanic or Celtic tribes. The first impression is that the cathedral is in keeping with the rest of Salzburg's beautiful city, where each building appears in harmony with the next. Two towers preside over a very nice square, which invites people inside, where we met a monk with an Argentine accent who sold us stamps in many languages. The interior keeps with the Baroque style, perhaps less ornate than the Italian or Spanish baroque, but very tasteful. Worth the visit.
St Gilgen is a bustling town located by the lake Wolfgansee in the state of Salzburg. Although Mozart never lived here, the whole town pays homage to the musician as his grandfather lived here, his mother was born here and his sister lived here. There is a fountain dedicated to Mozart and, nearby, a young woman plays the violin.
This "horse well" was built by Fischer von Erlach at the same time as the front part of the stables. Restored in 1732, it has undergone several changes including a new orientation of the "Der Rossebändiger" statue and the fresco paintings of Josef Ebner. The place is really colorful and nice to admire, especially for fans of these animals!
