Originally built in 1620, this Baroque-styled Roman Catholic Church is certainly one of Vienna's most ornate in decor. In the early 1700's the Italian architect, Andrea Pozzo, redesigned the church and sculpted it into what you can see today. The pulpit features the Apostle Matthew in amazingly beautiful detail, the sanctuary is decorated with marble columns, intricately carved pews, and a spectacular domed and painted ceiling. This is a must see for all those who adore religious architecture and art!
Reading the guide books about Vienna will give several recommendations for churchs or cathedrals.
Not many suggest the Jesuit Church. Their loss.
The exterior of the church belies the wonder inside. It is truly beautiful.
And quiet. As it is not on the main tourist schedule, and is somewhat out of the way, the inside is so serene it cannot be believed.
Please go out of you way to visit- so long as you don't ruin it for me next time I go!
