Cathedral door

With its baroque bulbous towers, St. Fridolin's Cathedral is an exceptional monument, visible from afar. After a fire in the city in 1272 destroyed the original church, the cathedral was built in the Gothic style between 1343 and 1360 but, burnt down by the French in 1678 during the Dutch War, it was transformed into a Baroque cathedral when reconstructed.
