Sankt Veit an der Glan - Sankt Veit
The parish church is mentioned first time in 1131, then belonging to the Diocese of Gurk, but in 1137 the place was "acquired" by the Diocese of Bamberg, like so many places and villages in Carinthia.

The once Romanesque building burned down in 1829 and got rebuilt within the 19th century.

The round karner (ossuary), next to the church, erected within the 12th or 13th century survived the fire.
