Maria Plain is a basilica located on the northern edge of Salzburg, Austria. The basilica is on a hill called Calvary Hill. Built in the late Baroque style by Giovanni Antonio Dario, it was consecrated in 1674. Mozart composed the Coronation Mass in 1779, in celebration of the picture of the Madonna and Child.

The interior of Maria Plain was designed by famous Austrian Baroque artist Kremser Schmidt and Thomas and Franz Schwanthaler.
