Ceiling of the Karlskirche by lbellamy

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.
