St. James Cathedral in Innsbruck, Austria

This is St. James Cathedral also known as St. Jakob Cathedral or Dom zu St. Jakob. It is one of Innsbruck's most famous buildings located near the Hofburg Palace in the Old City. The church is one of the most significant religious sites in Austria. Historical records reveal that a church has occupied the site since 1180. Two towers flank the concave exterior, which has arch- and oval-shaped windows. A dome rests above the transept crossing in the central portion of the building. One tower contains a large clock that is more than 300 years old. Since 1982, the second tower has housed a 48-bell carillon, which is the largest in Austria. Each day at noon, it peals a musical supplication for peace on earth. #stjamescathedral #stjakobcathedral #domzustjakob #church #catholicchurch #innsbruck #austria #europe #travel #landmark #diasfamilyadventures

Awesome!! St. James Cathedral also known as St. Jakob Cathedral is very beautiful church.. My family is Catholic, however, I am a Christian. One of my friends went to that church and told me the story about Innsbruck Cathedral. I was very interested in learning about this. Someday, I would go there. Thank you for sharing!
