St. Veit in Tartsch

Solitary, seen from long distances, the St. Veith church stands on the hill of Tartsch – an area populated since the pre Christian. The tower dates back to the 11th century, and it is one of the first examples of an inarticulate tower. The present church was built at the end of the same century. Within the structure of prior buildings, there is a simple nave with a round apse, all of stone slabs. From the remains of fragmentary Romanesque frescoes, you can guess the interior atmospheric decoration of the church. The signs of burning inside are the bequest of the Engadine war of 1499.
