On the Schlossberg high above Pitten you can visit the artful mountain church, which is dedicated to Saint George. The baroque building dates from the 18th century and is surrounded by a wall - so it can be assigned to the fortified churches.
A rare cave church with frescoes from the 13th century is hidden directly behind the mountain church. It is believed that the cave church was already used as a place of worship in pre-Christian times. You also have a spectacular view of the surroundings from here.
