Chapel of St. Barbara
Chapel of Saint Barbara

Behind the church St. Nikolaus lies the chapel of Saint Barbara, again in the gothic style and with an octagonal plan. It was completed in 1450 and was the mortuary chapel dedicated to Archangel Michael. On the upper floor you can admire one of the oldest star vaults in South Tyrol, while a star ridge vault closes the crypt in the basement. From 1501 the small chapel is dedicatet to St. Barbara, since she was the patron saint of the cooper guild, which took care of the maintenance of the chapel.
