Bressanone Cathedral

The landmark of the city

Bressanone Cathedral is the landmark of the city and the Bishop’s Church of the Roman-Catholic Diocese of Bolzano-Bressanone. The Cathedral is also called Basilica minor.

The original cathedral was built in 980. After 2 fires the Romanesque redesign with three naves and two front towers began around 1200. A Baroque design was built in 1745-1754, with frescoes by Paul Troger (ceiling painting: The adoration of the Lamb, approx. 200m²) and paintings of his students. The high altar by Theodor Benedetti is one of Tyrol’s most important Baroque altars. The inside of the Cathedral is built with 33 different types of valuable marble. The organ has 3,335 pipes and 84 stops.
