Peterskirche

St Peter’s church, one of Vienna’s oldest, was, according to legend, founded in 792 by Charlemagne, as commemorated in a marble relief on the church’s fa?ade, The Placing of the Cross by Charlemagne, by Rudolf Weyr (1906). The site was occupied by a Roman basilica as early as the 12th century. The present Baroque church was built in the 18th century to designs by Gabriele Montani. It received its final form from Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt, who also gave the church its magnificent green patinacovered dome, which towers over the whole district. The frescoes inside the dome, depicting the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, were created by J.M. Rottmayr. The Chapel of St Michael, the first on the right, holds a glass coffin containing the relics of St Benedict.
