Abbey Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

The Benedictine Abbey of Ossiach, founded in the 11C, enjoyed periods of splendour before being secularized in 1783, then partly demolished. Today, its restored buildings house a hotel and host an internationally famous music festival. The Romanesque church was "Baroquized" with magnificent soft-tone stuccowork and a vault painted by Joseph Ferdinand Romiller. The baptistry boasts one of the most precious Gothic carved altarpieces in Carinthia.
