12 days of Christmas: day 11

Yet another photograph from last winter’s vacation in Seefeld. Located at the western entrance to the town, and visible from afar, the Seekirchl is probably its most famous and iconic landmark. Not consecrated until 1666, work began on the octagonal, centralised Baroque structure in 1628.

Starting our mornings from the cross-country ski school, we regularly skied past this church though I confess I’ve never been inside. I understand it has some interesting frescoes depicting its origins and the cross on the main altar previously stood out in the open and dates back to well before the church was built.
