Another interesting ancient monument is the Cathedral constructed in the 17th century by the famous architect Carlo Antonio Carlone. Since the first days of the cathedral and up to the present time the large organ has been its main decoration. Many eminent musicians have performed their music there. The fine cathedral is a true sample of the Baroque style, and the best landmark in Renaissance style is the Landhaus building.
In the early Middle Ages there was a monastery on this place; later the building was re-formed and government agencies settled down there. Travelers are sure to take a stroll through the corridors of ancient building and look into the inner courtyard, where there is a beautiful fountain with a bronze sculpture. The church of St. Martin is a unique landmark of Linz. It is the oldest religious building of the country; the church was first mentioned back in 799. In 1947 the complete reconstruction of the church was held; paintings dating back the early 15th century were restored by skillful painters.
You can find a lot of interesting monuments and memorials in the city. The plague column of the Holy Trinity is a wonderful monument of Baroque architecture located on Hauptplatz. The monument was unveiled in 1723; it symbolizes the victory over the terrible disease.
