Opposite Dr-Ignaz-Seipel-Platz is the Jesuitenkirche, formerly the university church, which dates from 1627. In 1703 this church received a baroque makeover by the Italian architect and painter Andrea Pozzo (1642–1709), who created its startling trompe-l’œil dome and other ceiling frescos. Walk beyond the ‘dome’ to visually destroy Pozzo’s illusion.
