Vierzehnheiligen [Sky Watch Friday]

By Shattman

This beautiful sky provides a wonderful backdrop for the facade of the Basilica of the Fourteen Holy Helpers [in German, known as Vierzehnheiligen]. This week we travel from Halberstadt, in the former East  Germany, down south close to the town of Bad Staffelstein near Bamberg. The church, in the late Baroque-Rococo style, was constructed between 1743 and 1772. The church attracts many visitors, who have to be reasonably fit in order to traverse the steep climb up the road from the parking lot. However, one is rewarded with this striking view, and an even better interior.
