Munich, Germany has many beautiful churches, but there was one in particular that took my breath away.
The Theatine Church was built in the 17th century and was built in the Italian-Baroque style that was prevalent in many churches in Rome at the time.
Upon walking up to it, I initially wasn’t that impressed. But once I was inside, I was in awe of the intricacy of the designs. They were so detailed and looked so delicate. I only wish I’d had a better camera at the time. Even if I had, though, I doubt I could’ve captured the beauty inside this church. It definitely has to be seen in person.
Another thing that struck me about the inside of this church was that everything was white. Other churches are covered in colorful stained glass or have extravagant amounts of gold. Don’t get me wrong, those are beautiful too! But when suddenly you are faced with nothing but white, there is something very clean and pure about it. I really hope that one day I can go back and see the Theatine Church again…
