San Nicolò/St. Nikolaus
San Nicolò/St. Nikolaus (Cathedral of Meran)

The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas, the patron saint of the city, and stands at the end of the Lauben arcade. It is one of the first monuments in Tyrol built entirely in the gothic style. First mentioned in 1220, it was enlarged and completed in 1465. Notable exterior features are the numerous frescoes on the southern façade and the richly decorated door with rose window, the magnificent altar, the Gothic choir, the sculptures and the paintings.

Behind the church lies the chapel of Saint Barbara, again in the gothic style and with an octagonal plan.
