About Franciscan Church, Salzburg
The first church on this location was likely form the 8th century, and even though the current building was built around five centuries later, it is still one of the oldest churches in the city. Initially of a late Romanesque design, the church was given a Gothic choir and tower in the 15th century. In the 18th century, it was further spruced up with Baroque touches. Highlights of church are:
The red marble and gold High Altar by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach.

- The Rosary of chapels.
- Frescoes by Conrad Laib on the triumphal arch.
- The nine Baroque chapels with very distinct decorations by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach.

Franciscan Church, Salzburg Reviews - Write a Review
My favorite church in Salzburg. If you're in town for Christmas, the Christmas Eve Mass was beautiful and much less crowded than in the Dom. I like this church because it's one of Salzburg's oldest and has much less of the overly-gilded baroque style than most. I also at some point saw some concerts here, and the music sounded very unique in the setting.
Wonderful church interior. Romanesque nave to Gothic quire. Barque artistry prevalent.
One of the few Catholic churches of Salzburg. Magnificent
Now THIS church is really special. I've gotta admit I am not a huge fan of Baroque (it's just too much for me), but the way this one is decorated and those funny little details you can find... yeah, it sort of convinced me Baroque wasn't that bad afterall.
