Austria-00876 - Inside St. Peter's Church

PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

St. Peter's Church, it is said that a holy house stood here during the reign of the Romans. At that time Christianity was advancing rapidly, that is why they rebuilt an old barrack into a church with a single nave. That could have been the oldest church in Vienna.

 

A relief on the outside of the wall shows though, that Emperor Charlemagne had founded the church in 792, can very well be just a legend.
