A fusion of Gothic and Romanesque architectural styles, Franziskanerkirche represents one of Salzburg's oldest churches. Stop by the church, located in the heart of the city's Old Town, and admire the exterior's medieval construction, dating from the 1200s. Its footprint is squat, its roof is relatively steep, and its facade features high arched windows. Make your way inside and note the change in appearance as you transition through the naves and vaulted ceilings to the original basilica. Wander through the different chapels within, and be sure to view the religious works of art and Baroque decorations that contrast with the rest of the building.

A top sight in Salzburg - Romanesque origins but lofty central gothic choir sets this impressive ancient church apart. Retains some Fresco's on pillars and piers, and for once the baroque elements enhance rather than overwhelming. Still a Franciscan church, a good place for mass.
