Trier, Germany Photos
Trier on the Moselle River is the oldest city in Germany and was the Roman capital (Augusta Treverorum) of the western territories and an imperial residence. Emperor Constantine (1st half of 4thC) built a defensive wall and magnificent buildings, parts of which still survive. Trier is particularly noted for Porta Nigra (2ndC) Roman city gate, Trier Cathedral and adjacent Liebfrauenkirche (13thC church) and its Archeological Museum, one of the most significant in Europe.
