Austria: Graz Cathedral and Mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II

On Tuesday I got two postcards from Austria.

One of them shows the Graz Cathedral and the Mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II. The Graz Cathedral was built between 1438 and 1462 and the Mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II was built next to it in the 17th century. Since 1786 is the church the cathedral of the Diocese of Graz-Seckau. Together they form one of the most important Mannerist monuments in Austria.


With a matching stamp:
800 years Diocese of Graz-Seckau (issued 08-06-2018)


Thank You very much Anita!
