Although the Porte Negro is the well known sight in Trier, I found this Basilica built in the Roman period, even more interesting. This is not promoted a number one attraction, but it is. It is one of the few roman buildings that survived and is still used today. Look at the thick walls and image the meetings which took... More

The Basilica of Constantine in Trier, Germany is a Roman palace basilica built by emperor Constantine (AD 306–337) in the early 4th century. If you are me and love history, this place will keep you busy for a couple to a few hours. Fascinating!! A real must see.

This was amazing to visit. It is a wonderful piece of history that has been preserved wonderfully. Looking at it, you would have no idea that it is as old as it is and that the inside is so big. Our guide told us that two of the Porta Nigra could easily fit into it. Just beautiful.

This is an enormous roman structure, at full size and in excellent preservation. If you are interested in history then you must visit, the inside is impressive! It's a shame they don't give/ sell any info about the place, so you should research it beforehand. It's free to get in too!

Basicilla of Constantine (Aula Palatina) is the now owned by the Evangelical Lutheran Church, but it was built by Emperor Constantine around 310 AD. The misleading title of this listing diminishes the historic importance of this ancient Roman site. At over 1700 years old, this church is in great shape. It is also a part of the UNESCO World Heritage... More

I visited this church one day and happened to see a man in a toga stating that it was about to get noisy. He was the tour guide! If you have a chance, please take the tour. You are led downstairs where the secrets are revealed!

This large building was originally the Basilica of Constantine dating back to around 300. The building is of tremendously impressive size and is well worth seeing. However it was severely damaged by fire in 1944 and the interior is bare brick. Of course the previous Church decoration might distract one more from the Roman original. They would no doubt have...

Realising this is only part of an originally much larger complex of buildings. The hight is astonishing, as are all dimensions. A clean large Lutheran church nowadays. No ornaments: clean, only for praying. Admire the massive organ, enjoy its sounds. Left a feeling of lost grandeur.

Built to impress and it did! We managed to get in with only 10 mins to closing time at 6pm but worth the rush. Romans build BIG things and this is the definition of a big room. Now as a Protestant church it is still used and has a wonderful pipe organ that we were lucky enough to hear the... More
