The Cathedral of St. Peter is the seat of the Roman-Catholic Diocese of Trier and the oldest cathedral in Germany. The earliest structures date back to the years 329-346 A.D. Many times enlarged, partially destroyed and rebuilt over the next few centuries the cathedral now covers an area of about 350x120 feet. The most celebrated relique of the cathedral is the "Seamless Robe of Jesus", which is the robe said to have been worn by Jesus during (or shortly before) his crucifixion.
Extensive crypts underneath the cathedral and many sites inside the main nave are burial places for many Electors and Bishops of Trier. The interior is of three Romanesque naves with Gothic vaulting, and a Baroque chapel for the relic of the Seamless robe of Jesus, recovered from the interior of the high altar in 1512,
The cathedral stands immediately next to the Liebfrauenkirche (Cathedral of our Lady).
