Leechkirche - Review

This is Graz’s oldest Roman Catholic church. They say it was built on the site of a graveyard from the 6th century, but no remains of the grave still exist; it’s suspected that grave robbers are to blame. Roman tiles found on the roof of the rotunda lead scholars to believe that the initial construction of the church was started using the remains of a local Roman house.

It’s main highlight today is:

  • The excellent tympanum over the portal – it’s a relief of the Madonna with her child.
  • The church’s lovely stained glass windows.
  • Late-Baroque high altar
  • The Gothic tabernacle from the 1499
  • Late Gothic crucifix

Leechkirche Information

  • Εκεί στεγάζεται η Ελληνοορθόδοξη Ενορία του Γκράτς. Πολύ ωραία περιοχή και ο Ναός έχει τη δική του μακρά ιστορία!

  • Pravdepodobne najstarší kostol v Graci stojí na malej vyvýšenine, pôvodnej pohrebnej mohyle z doby halštadtskej. Určite stojí za chvíľku pozornosti pri prehliadke štajerskej metropoly.

  • Interessante Kirche aus dem 12. Jhdt. Muss bei der Sightseeingtour dabei sein

  • Das Lächeln der Madonna im Tympanon des Portals, die Glasmalereien aus dem Spätmittelalter und ihre erhöhte Lage auf einem hallstattzeitlichem Grabhügel machen diese Kirche zu einer der interessanteren im Grazer Stadtgebiet.
