Lonely Planet review

Built above the palace of Constantine the Great’s mother, Helena, this fortress-like cathedral is mostly Romanesque, with some soaring Gothic and eye-popping baroque embellishments.

To see some dazzling ecclesiastical equipment and peer into early Christian history, head upstairs to the Domschatz or go around the corner to the Bischöfliches Dom-und Diözesanmuseum The prized exhibit here is a 4th-century Roman ceiling from Helena’s palace, in vivid colours, that was pieced together from countless fragments.
