St. Gallen Cathedral Interiors

The interior of St. Gallen Cathedral is opulently decorated with beautiful paintings and carvings. All the works here are themed; the walls depict scenes of life of St. Benedict. Malachite green color is used abundantly. The railings have delicate carvings.

The abbey library here has the oldest library. The designs in the ceilings here too are marvelous. There are books dating from the 8th and 11th centuries. They number more than 150,000 books. This is included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. It is for this tag we went all the way to east of Switzerland. Worth the effort!
