Salzburg

LUXURY VILLAS AND CHALET FOR SALE - SALZBURG, AUSTRIA

The first organized nucleus of Salzburg dates back to 15 BC when the Celtic communities of the area, under Roman domination, gathered to form an inhabited center with the name of Juvanum. The current name appeared for the first time in 755 and refers to the extraction of rock salt in the nearby mountains, which was the backbone of the city's economy.

From the Middle Ages the city became a Bishopric. Frederick I Barbarossa was the first to dislike the thing and refused to recognize the authority of the bishops, subjecting the city with the force. Only in the 13th century (1200-1246) the archbishop Eberhard of Truchsee succeeded in reconstituting a bishop's kingdom, without however falling out of the graces of the Empire. The center remained virtually autonomous until 1803: the prudent policy of the bishops kept the Bishopric out of the great European wars and allowed the city to prosper. In the same period, the historical center was almost entirely rebuilt in Baroque style.

When at last the bishops' temporal power was abolished (1803) throughout the Empire, the Secularized Principate of Salzburg was granted first to Grand Duke Ferdinand III of Tuscany, then (in 1805) passed to Austria together with the city of Berchtesgaden and back to Germany in 1810. In 1816, the city returned permanently under Austrian control and in 1850 Salzburg became an independent territory (before that, it depended from Linz).

The great monuments of Salzburg date back to the 16th and 17th centuries: the Palace of Hellbrunn, the Cathedral of Saints Rupertus and Virgil, the Church of the Franciscans (Franziskanerkirche), the Abbey of Nonnberg and the Castle of Mirabell.
