Historic buildings

Discover St. Andrä from its best side and get to know history up close.


Basilica Maria Loreto

Wir sind Basilika! Since July 21, 2014, the pilgrimage church Maria Loreto can consider itself fortunate to be the second 'Basilica minor' in Carinthia, alongside Maria Luggau.



The exact date of the construction of the Church of St. Andrew is unknown; however, there is justification to assume that it was built under Bishop Modestus as one of the oldest churches in the Lavant Valley.


Convent Maria Loretto

The prioress of the Dominican convent of Mahrenberg on the Drava River (SLO), Maria Johanna Linzer, expressed a desire to establish a Dominican convent near the Loretto Chapel in St. Andrä. The convent in Mahrenberg also belonged to the Diocese of Lavant.

Panorama Trail St. Andrä

On the Panorama Trail, the history of the city of St. Andrä becomes visible from the first settlement to the present day: 14 stations in the form of steles tell the story of the Lavant River, the episcopal seat of the Diocese of Lavant, medieval guilds, miraculous healings, and much more.


Room of History

... a journey through more than 2000 years of St. Andrä.


City wall and city gate

The right to fortify St. Andrä was certainly sought by Archbishop Heinrich, possibly due to the conflicts among the nobility in the Lavant Valley, which had assumed a particular scope during a period of pledging the Bamberg possessions in Carinthia.


House Elisabeth

The bishops of St. Andrä didn't even have their own house; for example, they resided in Friesach or at the Twimberg Fortress in Wolfsberg.


Augustinian Canons Monastery

The conferment of the archdiaconate to St. Andrä by Archbishop Eberhard II in 1203 suggests that the number of churches and believers in the Lavant Valley must have significantly increased.
