  • Vienna: Stephans Dom, outside

Stephans Dom – or the Cathedral of St. Stephen – dates back to twelfth century. Outside, the original Roman Towers (or Towers of the Pagans) and the Giant’s Doorare particularly beautiful.

On its back there is a nice pulpit (Capistran Chancel)dedicated to St. John of Capistrano.

To be noted the beauty of the painted tiled roof.

Inside, you find the beautiful nave, the Main Altar and the Gothic pulpit by Anton Pilgram who self-portrayed beneath the organ grandstand.

To be mentioned two other significant works: the Wiener Neustädter Altar surmounted by an altarpiece with finely painted representations and the icon of Our Lady of Pecs (Maria Pötsch Icon).
