Domkirche (Cathedral)

Domkirche (Cathedral) Review

South of Neuer Platz (take Karfreitstrasse and turn left on Lidmansky-Gasse) is the Domkirche, completed as a Protestant church in 1591, given over to the Jesuits and reconsecrated in 1604, and finally declared a cathedral in 1787. The 18th-century side-altar painting of St. Ignatius by Paul Troger, the great Viennese Rococo painter and teacher, is a fine example of the qualities of transparency and light he introduced to painting.
