5/43.- Vienna, Church of St Charles Borromeo


You can see here one of the best samples of the Baroque architecture in Vienna; the Saint Charles Borromeo Church, with its 236 feet high dome. This church was constructed from 1716 to 1739. The works were begun by JB Fischer von Erlach, and were continued by his son Joseph Emanuel. After an epidemic in Vienna, Emperor Charles VI ordered its construction. Inside the Church there are some interesting frescoes.

In front of the church you can see a sculpture by Henry Moore (at your left).

We’ll now cross the square in front of the church (behind us) and take a look at the Künstlerhaus ...
