St Oswald fortified church

Interesting
The largest fortified church in Styria, built from 1470 to 1518, is a major work of the Admont masons' guild. It was fortified by order of the Emperor in 1532, due to a direct threat of Turkish invasion, acquiring the encircling wall, towers and massive barbican still standing today. Inside, there are mining motifs on the organ loft and a wooden figurine in miner's dress from the period of Maximilian II.
