St. Maria in Lyskirchen

The well-preserved late-Romanesque vault and wall murals dating back to the 13th century are the special features of the small church of »St. Maria in Lyskirchen«. Scenes from the Old and New Testaments are depicted, which typologically contrast with each other. The murals were rediscovered around 1880, and restored up to 1977.
