The church is on a slightly offbeaten track/route. The churh is extraordinarily beautiful with elaborate carvings and beautiful architecture. The church has a Romanesque style to it. The ceiling and altar are quite ornate

This historic and ancient church in Salzburg is slightly off the beaten path, but so breathtaking on the inside... Its a bit dark, so open the exposure on your camera, and it reveals all the elaborate carvings and details.. A quiet visit, you can sense the serenity of years of history in this beautiful church...

This Romanesque church is filled with type features including the lion that leads to the pulpit. Make sure to look up and check out the ceiling. The altar is a bit ornate.

The impressive Franziskanerkirche - Franciscan Church - in Salzburg is well worth visiting. It is a work of art where photographs are permitted.

This and many other churches are all within walking distance. This church had a beautiful ceiling above the altar. It is not flashy like many of the other churches but was very charming.

This church stands out on the city skyline and it draws like a magnet to you. It is one of the larger churches in Salzburg. It is rather plain on the outside, but it is a totally different story on the inside. The altar area is beautiful, and inspiring. A visit here is mandated when in Salzburg.

This blend of romanic, gothic and baroque styles is amazing. The columns in the central part are infinitely tall and the ceiling artwork made up of beautifully intersecting lines make ofr a spectacular effect. Make sure you include it in your tour activities.

An unassuming exterior gives way to a truly breathtaking gothi interior, the altar is astounding as are the side chapels and the stone and stucco work is extraordinary. Definitely worth a visit though you should ensure your camera is silent as it is used as a regular place of silent prayer by many people
