In the center of Mainz stands Mainzer Dom, the spectacular six-towered catholic Cathedral of St. Martin and St. Stephen, ranking along with the cathedrals of Speyer and Worms as one of the supreme achievements of Romanesque religious architecture on the Upper Rhine. While the cathedral was started in 975 AD, most of the building dates from the 11th to the 13th centuries. Highlights include the many tombs and monuments of once powerful princes and archbishops, as well as many centuries-old religious artworks. - in: http://www.planetware.com/tourist-attractions-/mainz-d-rh-mai.htm
