St. Charles Borromaeus (Karlskirche)

1716 - 1737

Why is it canonical?

The area of present day Germany and Austria saw few commissions during the Rococo period owing to the destruction of the Thirty Years War. What followed was a wave of new architectural works. This structure's facade is strongly influenced by classical architecture, even featuring columns to mirror Trajan's column.
