Bibendum
The Benedictine Admont Abbey has been one of Christendom's great cultural centres since its foundation in the 11C. It remains so today, with a library that boasts some 1 400 manuscripts and 150 000 volumes. It is a splendid Rococo building, worthy of the treasures that it houses. After admiring the upper gallery, with its wrought-iron balustrade, note the ceiling frescoes by Bartolomeo Altomonte and the famous The Four Last Things, a series of sculptures by Josef Stammel.
