Salzburg Franciscan Church, Austria - Franciscan Church


To the north of St Peter's Church in Salzburg's Inner metropolis stands the Franciscan Church (Franziskanerkirche), which was the town's parish church dedicated to the Virgin until 1635. Distinguished features of the exterior are the high roof of the gospel choir and the tower on the southern side with its Neo-Gothic tiller roof of 1867. The dark Romanesque nave of 13th century contrasts with the high, light Gothic choir. In front of a ring of Baroque chapels (1606-1704) stands the high altar with a engraved Madonna by Michael Pacher. In the central chapel at the rear the altar is a sectioned marble altar from the old Cathedral.
