Karl and Peter


Their churches in Vienna…(obviously. The holiday snaps are nearly done.)


Karlskirche is like an icing-sugar white version of St Peter’s outside, with a lake built before it to reflect it


It’s a church of St Charles Borromeo, who can be seen on the frescoes of the dome, along with other saints and angels, a cabbage and a stream of gold coins.


The light in this window reminded me of the Rad Cam in Oxford, as did St Peter’s dome, which appears down a side street,


Inside was lots more carving and gold, along with some bizarre (symbolic?) flouorescdnt pink rocks and tennis balls on a stick.


Much nicer than the rather dull cathedral though…
