Excellent architecture. One of the main attraction in Liechtenstein. You will find many tourists here. Vaduz Cathedral is a main church in Vaduz, Liechtenstein and the center of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vaduz.

It's a small Cathedral with Gothic style architecture. I liked the glass windows behind the alter and there are very nice sculptures in front of the Cathedral. It is definitely worth a visit, doesn't take much time and has nice views of the mountains from the front.

Temple of Portunus

The Temple of Portunus or Temple of Fortuna Virilis ('manly fortune') is one of the best preserved of all Roman temples. Its dedication remains unclear, as ancient sources mention several temples in this area of Rome, without saying enough to make it clear which this is.

The temple was originally built in the third or fourth century BC but was rebuilt between 120-80 BC, the rectangular building consists of a tetrastyle portico and cella, raised on a high podium reached by a flight of steps, which it retains.

The temple owes its state of preservation to its being converted for use as a church in 872 and rededicated to Santa Maria Egyziaca (Saint Mary of Egypt). Its Ionic order has been much admired, drawn and engraved and copied since the 16th century. The original coating of stucco over its tufa and travertine construction has been lost.
