The history of Salzburg began with Nonnberg Abbey. The monastery was founded by Saint Rupert in the 8th century, and from that time it functioned as a convent for noble representatives of aristocratic families (only from the 19th century ordinary girls began to be admitted here). Thanks to the generous donations of wealthy sisters, the abbey amassed an impressive fortune and began to enjoy serious influence in the surrounding lands.
