Baroque Church & Franciscan Monastery


This 17th-century baroque church at the heart of town was built in 1630 by the noble Erdödy brothers. The adjacent Franciscan monastery has two restored sarcophagi of the Erdödy family, elaborate findings from the baroque era, hidden in the crypt. Make arrangements to see them through the tourist office.
