If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times — always look up at the ceiling in Europe! 🙂 So often, the most incredible aspects of a church is the ceiling. Beautiful frescoes depicting ancient stories. Vienna’s Karlskirche is glorious from top to bottom, but the ceiling is definitely not to be missed.
In 1713, one year after the last great plague epidemic, Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, pledged to build a church for his namesake patron saint, Charles Borromeo, who was revered as a healer for plague sufferers.

The dome of the marvelous St. Charles’ Church in Vienna, Austria. One of the most beautiful churches I have visited so far. Really a ‘must see’ when you are in Vienna.
