One of the most important emblems of Brixen is the cathedral. Its origins go back to the 10th century and this means that this important church has lived through quite some events in the past centuries. Due to fires, the cathedral was rebuilt several times. After the last great fire in the 15th century, it was designed into a Gothic church with upward leading pillars. A further moment of refurbishment came in the 18th century Baroque time. It is in any case a breathtaking building from the outside as well as the inside. Let yourself be enchanted by the history of this important monument!
