St. Stephen’s Cathedral

St. Stephens Cathedral

The first church to occupy the site of St. Stephan’s Cathedral was a Romanesque church, which was replaced by a larger Romanesque basilica in 1147. A major fire in 1258 destroyed the basilica and construction on the present Gothic cathedral began in the early 14th century.¬† The cathedral suffered damage during the Turkish seige of 1683 and again in the closing days of World War II, when fire from streetfighting leapt to the rooftop. The cathedral was reopened in 1948; the roof was repaired and decorated with ceramic tiles donated by Viennese citizens in 1950.¬† Among the important events that have occurred at St. Stephen’s are Mozart’s wedding in 1782 and his funeral in December 1791.
