Tips and Inspiration for your European holiday

Dating back to the mid-17th Century, Lucerne's Jesuit Church was the first large Baroque church built north of the Alps in Switzerland. The first cornerstone for the church was laid in 1666 and the twin-towers with their 'onion' domes are now are prominent feature of Lucerne. The church's position on the River Reuss right near the Chapel Bridge makes it a much-visited place and with good reason - the interior really takes your breath away.


After visiting many of Europe's famous churches, I was pleasantly surprised by the lightness inside the Jesuit Church.  Used to grey stone interiors in most of the cathedrals and churches I've visited in the past, this one really impressed me.
