Outside St Stephens

I started my day in Vienna at St Stephens, a fantastic church in the center of the old town. The church was beautiful and so different on each side. I think I could have wandered around it time and time again and still keep finding new and interesting bits and pieces.

I say it all the time, but I'm always amazed by the detail work done on older buildings. Especially when I stop and think about the tools they had to work with. I wish more of it carried over into modern buildings.

I think my favorite part of this church was the patterned, tiled roof. It was so colorful and it reflected the light of the sun so beautifully.

This amazing set of frescos and sculptures was inset on the back of the church.
