Very beautiful and majestic cathedral. In my opinion, this is one of the main attractions of Vaduz. It is immediately clear that this is the main cathedral of the principality. We were lucky that we were soon after Christmas and the temple was still decorated for the holidays. And I also liked the water drains on the side of the temple in the form of a chimera. If you are in Vaduz, be sure to visit. Both the temple and its surroundings are worth special attention.

For a smaller cathedral we enjoyed the stain glass windows, and continued our family tradition of candle lighting and prayer in every cathedral we visit. Easy walking from here to other attractions and restaurants. We went on Father’s Day and got to enjoy some of a large cycling race which finished near the cathedral.

St Florin is a Catholic Church located in the central tourist area in Vaduz. It is only about 100 metres from Liechtenstein Centre. Originally a parish church, it has held the status of cathedral since 1997. It was built in 1874 by Friedrich von Schmidt on the site of earlier medieval foundations.

A beautiful neo-gothic cathedral of Vaduz. It was so beautiful when the sunlight was hitting through the windows.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
