Churches that are dedicated to St. Peter are usually very old churches. For this reason it comes as no surprise that a Church of St. Peter was mentioned in the parish archive as long ago as 1305. The church of St. Peter in Mitterlana was built in its present form in 1680.
The church features elements of the Renaissance and Baroque periods in both its structure and elaborate furnishings. Alterations, renovations and additions took place between 1770 and 1776, in 1836, 1860, 1901/02 and in 1986.
