Organs Of The Constantine Basilica /// Trier, Germany

Built at the beginning of the 4th century by the emperor Constantine I, this colossal Basilica – known as « Aula Palatina », is located in the heart of Trier, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. Two modern organs adorn this perfectly restored monument: a choir organ embedded in a window location and a great organ – designed by the architectural firm Auer Weber. An outstanding minimal design that blends perfectly with this place of history and heritage.
