The Salzburg Cathedral is massive. It was completed in 1657 and is famous for its Italian style. The main nave, 32 meters high, has ceiling paintings by Donato Mascagni and Ignazio Solari. The high altar of 1628 is attributed in the design to the master builder of the cathedral Santino Solari. We took our time wandering around the cathedral and saw many beautiful things like the dome over the transept (it's 71 meters high). The crypt has some wonderful chapels and there's the baptismal font at the rear of the church were both Mozart and Joseph Mohr, the man who wrote the words for “Silent Night!", were baptized. Allow for ~1 hr for your visit.
