  • Always been important to the city, this church has moved into second place with regard to the religious services with the construction of the Cathedral, but it must not be forgotten. Built in the 11th century, its Bell Tower, the ' White Tower ', is a symbol of Brixen. For some years now, unfortunately is open but not visible because of archaeological excavations for the discovery of ancient tombs (these panels give detailed explanation). There are hundreds and hundreds of tombs, stacked four or five on each other to a depth of a few meters. Some graves contained the typical seashells collected on the shores of the Atlantic and brought by pilgrims from Santiago de Compostela and it is not excluded that some tombs belong to the age in which arose the Maierhof, out of which grew, with the donation of Louis the child in 901, the modern city of Brixen.

  • Ancient church that stands on the side of the Cathedral. We walked in to see her but only the part after the main door was accessible because they are ongoing excavations since during restoration came to light pre-very ancient existences. Curtain wall explains the ongoing work with interesting photographic documentation and there are Windows that you see the Church. The artworks inside are "bundled" to protect them. To be reviewed for sure at work completed that should enhance as found.
