Basilika St. Laurenz

Interesting
This basilica was built on a site of ancient Lauriacum in the late 13C. Its Baroque ribbed vaulting is more recent. The tabernacle, a Pietà and a Madonna are fine Medieval works. Vestiges of a Gallo-Roman temple, a 4C Christian church and a Carolingian basilica have been unearthed. In front of the church stands an ossuary with a façade sculpture depicting Pontius Pilate as a Turkish Great Vizier.
