Lorenzi church

In the centre of the town of St. Lorenzen am Kreischberg, there stands a special example of the Gothic in the Upper Murtal and the Upper Carinthia region: the church dedicated to St. Lawrence, which features a painted wooden ceiling, in what was known as "Larentzen pey der Mur".


This appealing little church with Romanesque core was expanded in the 17th and 18th centuries and boasts a stencilled wooden beam ceiling. It is very similar to the neighbouring church of St. Cecilia. The Baroque high altar with the Gothic figure of St. Lawrence in the centre is a good example of how two extremely different styles ‒ here Gothic and Baroque ‒ can be fused harmoniously. It also features a wooden curiosity in the form of the oldest confessional in the Alpine region, dating back to 1607; it is a work of simple joinery, complete with pokerwork and inscription. The confessant, given very little room, kneels away from the confessor, an exemplification of Catholic hierarchy.
