Take a tour of Mondsee Basilica in Mondsee, Austria – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
The Mondsee Basilica, or the Parish Church of Saint Michael, is one of the greatest buildings in an Austrian town of the same name.
The cream-colored baroque building once served as the church of the now-abandoned Benedictine monastery.
The structure was founded in the 8th century and changed hands and religious affiliations many times throughout its life.
The double towers that flank this edifice have golden spires and are over 70 feet tall.
The interior of the basilica features stunning classic art, sculptures, and artifacts which only add to the structures grandeur and sense of history.
A small, open plaza, lined with well-groomed bushes and trees, marks the front entrance to this distinguished basilica.
