Back Entrance to the Cathedral of St Peter Trier Dom
The Cathedral of St Peter Trier Dom was originally built by Constantine the Great, the first Christian Roman Emperor; it is the oldest church in Germany. The Cathedral of Trier houses great works of art and a holy relic that draws many pilgrims: the Holy Robe, the garment said to be worn by Jesus when he was crucified. On the banks of the Moselle River lies Trier, Germany oldest city, founded as a Roman colony in 16 B.C. by Emperor Augustus. Trier became the favored residence of several Roman emperors and was even called Roma Secunda, the second Rome. Nowhere else in Germany is the evidence of Roman times as vivid as it is in Trier.
