St. Sebastian’s Church & Cemetery: two architectural highlights in Salzburg

St. Sebastian’s Church & Cemetery belong to those sights of Salzburg people don’t necessarily know, although being absolutely worth a visit: designed on the model of Italian “campi santi”, St. Sebastian’s Cemetery adjacent to the homonymous church still evokes a kind of Mediterranean atmosphere. It is of course worth a visit especially during
the warm season but can be visited all the year round. The site with its arched tombs is the last resting place of Mozart’s parents, among others, and also prince-archbishop Wolf Dietrich was laid to rest in a very magnificent burial site.
