Day 11 : Luzerne (6) : Jesuitenkirche
The next stop on our visit to Lucerne was the Jesuitenkirche.
The cornerstone of this baroque church was laid in December 1666 and construction began in 1667. The church was consecrated in 1677 but the interior was not yet finished. The onion-topped towers were only completed in 1893.
