Erected in 1603 the outside facade of this Roman Catholic Church is Renaissance in style, however, inside you will find the structure is decidedly Baroque. The high altar was designed by Andrea Pozzo in 1707 and depicts the Virgin Mary in a quite vivid and animated style lending her an almost theatrical presence. The church also boasts the oldest organ in Vienna which was designed by Johann Wockerl in 1642-you will walk away amazed by the beauty of the angels and other religious paintings it embellishes.
