Friesach
The Essential
Interesting
Friesach, with its ruined castles and fortifications, is Carinthia's oldest town, and was a strategic site on the road from Vienna to Venice. Its main square is lined with fine houses, and features a beautiful fountain, produced by Italian sculptors in 1563. St Nikolaus von Myra, Carinthia's largest church, St Blasius with its magnificent high altar, as well as the Petersberg and its local museum are also worth visiting.
