This 17th-century Baroque cathedral is the third iteration to sit on this site, replacing two that were destroyed in fires. The first cathedral was built in the 8th century.
The cavernous interior has beautiful ceiling frescoes, especially elaborate around the dome, and the small side chapels have intricate stucco work and cherubs.
Inside is the baptismal font in which Mozart was baptized. He was the organist here from 1779 to 1781 and wrote his Coronation Mass for the cathedral.
Domplatz 1a, 5020 Salzburg
