2 reviews of Catholic Cathedral Episcopal Church

Excellent acoustics

This church is located in the historic city centre, in Unirii Square . It's one of the most important religious buildings in Timisoara. Its construction began in 1738 by Jesuit monks and it was designed by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach in the typical Baroque imperial style, like most Austrian buildings in that era. The highlight of the main facade are the bottom pillars of Ionic and Corinthian styles. On both sides of the facade, there are two towers topped with curved pediments. There are eight side altars of baroque and rococo decor by the German painter Johann Adam Schopf in the interior, which emphasizes the Baroque organ, built by the Wegenstein company of Timisoara.
