St. Sebastian Cemetery

Old citizens and merchant families of Salzburg, as well as famous personalities, have found their last resting place in the splendid arcades of the cemetery.

It is probably the most significant sacred edifice of the city and at the same time the spiritual centre. With its splendid facade and mighty dome it presents itself as an impressive monumental structure of early barock on this side of the alps. Its creation is tightly connected to the essence and growth of the ecclesiastical principality. Destroyed by fire and rebuilt, enlarged and expanded, it bears witness to the power and independence of the archbishops of Salzburg.
