Overview

Salzburg's Cathedral is the largest of the city's 36 churches and serves as the backdrop for the annual Jedermann Festival. The first church to be erected on the site dates back to 774 and was dedicated to St. Virgil and St. Rupert. The building we see today - the third on the site - was erected from 1620 to 1628 by the architect Santino Solari and consecrated by Archbishop Paris Lodron, during the chaos of the Thirty Years' War. The cathedral can be seen from many points in the city but its even more majestic close up!
