Seen at a distance one can not miss this colossal architecture. It has a great purpose and up t this time it still stands. And the beauty of its grandeur can give one an awe and pure admiration.

This evangelical Lutheran church is such a change from all the other churches in the area as it is stack and not adorned with fancy altars worth a visit

The Roman Basilica is a truly amazing feat of ancient engineering. The biggest surviving single roomed space in the world is all that survives of a collection of buildings originally set out as a throne room and now a church. It's a very plain space but would imagine that it could be a sanctuary of serenity (if it weren't for... More

A very impressive place obviously worth visiting if you're in Trier. It won't take a lot of time, just come in and marvel, it doesn't have to be a long visit. Check the working hours before going there, though, as it's open at different times during the week. It's worth seeing on the inside, but it took me 2 attempts... More

Nowadays this structire is an Evangelical Lutheran Church and it is very impressive both in- and outside. The main reason why I was much astonished by this place is the fact it is almost 1700 years old and during the Roman times it served as the throne seat of the Roman Emperor. Just imagine the pompous gatherings that took place... More

First heard of this fascinating palace/church on a TV program presented by Historian Mary Beard. The church's Roman History and its unique architecture is certainly worth a visit

It was built by Emperor Constantine as the throne hall (Aula Palatina) at the beginning of the 4th century. It is the largest surviving single-room structure from Roman times. It contains the largest existing hall from antiquity at 220 feet long, 85 feet wide and is 108 feet high. It is part of the Roman Monuments, Cathedral of St. Peter... More

The Basilica of Constantine or Aula Palatina, at Trier, is a Roman palace basilica that was built by the emperor Constantine at the beginning of the 4th century, most likely during his 10-year stopover in Trier on his way to Constantinople. Build by the Romans, it has several features only found in lager public building, i.e. a hypocaust (central heating... More

We enjoyed learning the history of this church, especially after visiting the Dom. It's part of the history of Constantine and Helena. Although not part of the church, there is a nice cafe outside that makes a nice place for a snack before/after the visit. There is a small gift shop in the church, which has a very good selection...
