Glantschach - Sankt Andreas

Glantschach - Sankt Andreas
The church and the round Karner (ossuary), surrounded by the graveyard, are located right in the center of the little village (pop > 400). The first church was erected here between 958 and 991 and so is one of oldest in the area. Some walls of this building may still exist and be part of the church seen today.

The round Karner has a little apse. The Karner was erected in the 12th century.

Protected under a little roof on the southern wall is a large "Christopherus". Between his legs swims a crowned mermaid.
