Culture Club: Palace Jewel

The Würzburg Residence in Würzburg, southern Germany, was commissioned by the Prince-Bishop of Würzburg Johann Philipp Franz von Schönborn and his brother in 1720, and completed in 1744.  The building embodies the attainments of Western architecture of its day, French château architecture, Viennese baroque and the religious and secular architecture of northern Italy and is a synthesis of the arts of astonishing universality.
