Freising Cathedral

Freising Cathedral, also called Saint Mary and Corbinian Cathedral, is a romanesque basilica. It is the co-cathedral of the Catholic Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. The tomb of St. Corbinian, the patron saint of the bishopric, is located in the four-nave crypt ot the cathedral. In the centre of this crypt one of the most distinguished sculptures in Europe is located: the so called Bestiensäule (the column of beasts), carved out of stone in the high Middle Ages. The rococo decoration of the interior created in 1724 is a work of Cosmas Damian Asam and Egid Quirin Asam. After a fire had destroyed the old cathedral, the church was constructed from 1159 onwards and consecrated in 1250. St Mary's cathedral was the first brick structure to be built north of the Alps since ancient times.
