St. Nicholas in Burgeis

According to an inscription, the initial consecration of this church dates back to 1199. The nave has flat ceilings and is provided with slit windows. The choir is of a half-circle form, with an apse dome depicting the majesty and two well-preserved symbols of the evangelists. The frescoes date back to the 13th century. To the south of the triumphal arch, you can see the sacrifice of Cain and the upper part of a fishtail siren. On the head with long hair, we catch sight of a pensive look, and the gestures of her arms give the impression of a deep melancholy, very different from the demonic image of other murals.
