Very nice knight's castle from the outside. Privately owned and therefore cannot be viewed from the inside.
Luisa Duri (4 years ago)
It can be reached along an easy and shady path in the woods, which in the first part runs alongside the course of the Rienza. It dates back to the 12th century and belonged to the feudal lords of the bishop of Bressanone. Towards 1380 the counts of Gorizia took over. During the War of the Tyrol it was destroyed twice. In 1812 it was sold to the priest Josef Hauptmann, whose descendants are the current owners. The adjacent chapel is dedicated to Saint Kummemus and is very popular. The castle cannot be visited. From the plateau in front of it you can admire a beautiful panorama that reaches up to Kronplatz.

A beautiful castle that can only be seen from the outside because it is privately owned, unfortunately

Proprietà privata, con tanto di cartello. Non visitabile agli interni. Per questo motivo non ci sono gli orari di visita. Ci sono solo delle passeggiate. I padroni sono poco cordiali, state alla larga da loro!

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
