Wallfahrtskirche Heiligenkreuz

The late-Baroque pilgrimage church of the Holy Cross, with its characteristic twin-tower façade stands on the right bank of the Drava. An unusual plan provides much more space to the transept crossing and choir than to the main nave. Paintings and richly decorated furnishings contribute to its overall harmony. From the left-hand side of the transept, an oval corridor leads to the miraculous chapel. Both are beautifully painted.
