Image in OP and interiors: 
The church of Pöstlingberg, Linz, Austria.
Pöstlingberg is the name of the mount over which the church is built.
Before the church was built, the mount became a place of pilgrimage, because of an icon of Mary of Sorrows. In 1716 a lay friar from the Capuchin monastery of Urfahr did bring the icon of Mary to the mount Pöstlingberg and placed the icon next to the cross which at that time was at the peak of the mount. In 1720 the place became a destination of pilgrimage, and a chapel was built to host the icon of Mary.
The church started to be built in 1742, and was consecrated in 1786.
In 1919 and 1963 the roof of the church was destroyed by fires.
In 1964 the church was elevated at the rank of minor basilica. 
(the church rank defines the priority and precedence of the religious edifice for important regional/national ceremonies and rites)

That's one old church. It shold be about 1000 years old now, since it was built in the 11th century.
> The Abbey Church of Sainte-Foy in Conques, France, was a popular stop for pilgrims traveling the Way of St. James to Santiago de Compostela, in what is now Spain. The main draw for medieval pilgrims at Conques were the remains of Sainte-Foy, a young woman martyred during the fourth century.
The carvings above the church doors are also interesting.

About Sainte-Foy:
> Saint Faith or Saint Faith of Conques (Latin: Sancta Fides; French: Sainte-Foy; Spanish: Santa Fe) is a saint who is said to have been a girl or young woman of Agen in Aquitaine. Her legend recounts how she was arrested during persecution of Christians by the Roman Empire and refused to make pagan sacrifices even under torture. Saint Faith was tortured to death with a red-hot brazier. Her death is sometimes said to have occurred in the year 287 or 290, sometimes in the large-scale persecution under Diocletian beginning in 303. She is listed as Sainte Foy, "Virgin and Martyr", in the martyrologies.
