Library of Waldsassen Abbey in Germany
Completed in 1727, the library of this sumptuous Cistercian Abbey of Waldsassen is a true jewel of Baroque art. Its stucco decorations made by Pietro Appiani are found next to remarkable woodwork and humorous figures, which one might not expect to find in a library of Cistercian monks!
