Parish Church St. Pauls

Position:
This is the most impressive building in St. Pauls | Eppan and stands in the centre of the village.

History:

It is clearly visible that this was one of the richest parishes in the district. It was tradition to subsidise the church, and due to all the aristocratic residents, money was no problem. The Parish was divided into Girlan | Eppan (Girlan, Schreckbichl, and Frangart) and St. Pauls | Eppan (St. Pauls, St. Michael, Montiggl, Berg, Missian, Unterrain, Perdonig and Gaid) in 1786. In 1921 the main parish of St. Michael | Eppan was transformed into the new parish of St. Michael | Eppan together with Montiggl | Eppan, Gand | Eppan, Pigeno | Eppan and the southern part of Berg | Eppan.




Architectural style:
Thanks to the generous contributions, the building of a particularly exquisite church was started in 1484. The building was completed in 1533, but that was only the church. The 86 m high tower was erected between the late 15th century and the middle of the 17th century. Thus the two styles of architecture. The lower and middle parts are Gothic and the upper part, with its onion shaped dome, is Baroque. Inside the tower there are 9 bells, the heaviest of which weighs 5 tons and is the second biggest in South Tyrol. Other sights to be found are a sundial dating from 1718, funeral monuments to the aristocratic families Firmian, Khuen, and Thun, and rests of late Gothic paintings. The church in St. Pauls | Eppan is the only church far and wide to be named only after St. Paul as usually St. Paul is found together with St. Peter.

Walking:

Many walks start here at the church, which is an ideal opportunity to look round the church.
