Beautifully resored

I loved the simplicity of this space, which fit in so well with the outside of the structure. The organ is beautiful as well.

The Basilica of Constantine or Aula Palatina, in Trier, Germany is a Roman palace basilica that was built by the emperor Constantine at the beginning of the 4th century. The basilica contains the largest extant hall from antiquity and is ranked a World Heritage Site which was very impressive! Today it is used as the Church of the Redeemer and... More

This cathedral dates back to the fourth century--to the Emperor Constantine. The hall is the largest surviving single-room structure from Roman times. No place north of the Alps can you find such a concentration of traces of Roman settlements. At one time, Trier was one of the largest cities in the Roman Empire. This structure was built to impress and... More

Emperor Constantine's magnificent throne and reception room makes a wonderful church. There is much more to this building than meets the eye and a Google guide is helpful. The facility is huge and has been restored to resemble its former glory albeit only a shadow of what it really looked like. In my opinion the best Trier attraction!

Visited with our tour group and a good local guide. She explained the history of the building to the present. Explained how the Romans heated the building. How more than half has been rebuilts since WWII bombing.

awesome and inspiring, a beautiful and austere structure that took my breath away. a fine place to meditate on the history of this endlessly fascinating city. it is a functional place of worship and no photos are allowed, which made it all the more impressive and enjoyable for me. one of the best experiences in Trier.

This is definitely a must to see if you're in the city of Trier. I would not go out of my way just to see this however. It is impressive because of its age and size. It's impressive because of the Roman history. The building itself I cannot say is all that spectacular. Perhaps one it was the emperors throne... More

You might be excused to believe this is just another building, but it actually is a 1700 years old Roman throne room, the core of the "palatium" or the palace of the emperors in Treviri. From here Constantine ruled for some time these lands. It is a sight not to be missed. Pity inside there is no explanation of its... More

Effectively it's a huge empty rectangular building. Apart from sheer size nothing special to look at from decorations or architecture perspective.
