Molzbichl - St. Tiburtius

Molzbichl - St. Tiburtius
Archeologists excavated the foundations of the oldest known monastery in Carinthia around and below the parish church of Molzbichl. This monastery, founded 770/780 during the Christianisation of the area, existed for nearly two centuries.

The church of the convent was really large, measuring impressive 24m x 8m.

The nave of today´s church, dedicated to Saint Tiburtius, was erected in the early 19th century, after the predecessing church was destroyed by fire.

The graveslab of a deacon named Nonnosus, who died at the age of 103 (!), is part of the altar.
