Pfarrkirche Hochfeistritz

Parish church Hochfeistritz is located in the municipality of Eberstein. This Roman Catholic parish is a fortified church and has a churchyard, a projecting gate tower and a semi-circular wall tower which are worth seeing. The first chapel of grace which was built in Hochfeistritz dates back to the early 1240 and is only open for pilgrimages.

The church building contains very detailed and valuable architecture. One of the beauties of this old and historical building is a unique fresco which was painted on the north wall of the nave, between years 1480 and 1490. This beautiful painting shows a cycle of Christ depicted in a special style in a cloth-like composition. It should be mentioned that this painting was transferred from the outer wall to the inside of the church in 1974.
