Sankt Veit an der Glan - Buergerspital

Sankt Veit an der Glan - Buergerspital
Sankt Veit an der Glan - BuergerspitalThis complex of buildings was mentioned the first time in 1321 as "hospitale extramuros de sancto Vito". The hospital (dedicated to St. Veit) is in deed located just outside (extramuros) the old town.

The buildings got altered in the 17th and after a fire in the 19th century. Unfortunately the Gothic church was already locked, the tympanum depicts a suffering Jesus, what may have given some comfort to the sick.
