Salzburg, Austria (2) – Dom zu Salzburg (Day 6)

The Salzburg Cathedral, recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, is located in the Alstadt district.   The baroque building is designed by Italian architect, Santino Solari and completed in 1657.  It would have taken me days to go over every intricate detail that is displayed inside this magnificent building.
