Zweinitz - St. Ägidius

Zweinitz - St. Ägidius
The church, dedicated to St. Ägidius (= "Saint Gilles") was mentioned the first time in 1169, though a legend tells, that it was founded by Saint Hemma of Gurk.

Rebuilt after a fire in 1354 it has been dependent from the Canons of Gurk upto 1781. It is located in the center of the village´s graveyard.

The ridge turret is pretty new, it was added to the church in 1929.
