Old cathedrals are being restored with a new method they are being washed maybe even gently sandblasted without damaging but removing the dirt and accumulation of the centuries to s new level. These centuries old buildings are looking like they are just built. Unesco is footing the bill for these world heritage sites. Portions of the structures are left untouched... More

Very impressive church with some parts dating to Roman times. Highest ceilings I have seen with impressive stained glass windows.

Remarkable building. The central part dates back to Roman times, but has had additions over the centuries. So in one building you see classical, romanesque, gothic, and baroque architecture. Loved walking through the cloister garden and seeing the gothic church next door too.

One is always overwhelmed with the incredible beauty and detail of these very old churches. It was great that we did not have to pay an entry fee. I can highly recommend visiting the Dom.

There are certainly more ornate churches in Italy, but all are somewhat unique and this one is no exception. You do not really need to purchase a tour though. You can tour on your own for free in about 1/2 hour. If you want more history, it is there for a small fee. This is probably the biggest attraction in... More

To say I have never seen anything quite like this place says something. I have seen dozens of cathedrals, basilicas, abbeys and churches, but nothing like this immense structure dedicated to God. To say that the late Trier Prince-Archbishop-Electors of the Holy Roman Empire thought on the grand scale is an understatement. Not only were they wealthy, but they jumped... More

I'm not the very religious type but this church is breathtaking from the outside. It's just massive. The inside is truly moving and it's worth the euro to get the tour cards that tells about the history of the church and the ancient ruins below.

A wonderful old church, still being utilized today. We went inside after our tour to sit and enjoy the silence, and the surroundings.
