Church of St. Francis (5)#

Church of St. Francis (5)
Licensed under PD

The same year that the Church of St. Francis of Assisi (the Jubilee Church) in Vienna was completed (1898), was also the year that the Empress Elisabeth was assassinated while on holiday.

A chapel to her memory - the Elisabethkapelle shown here - was incorporated into the church plan using the left transept. It presents a Byzantine flavor through its use of gold mosaics.
