Small and simple shapes externally, there are fine frescoes from the '400 and a beautiful organ but it is not accessible except with a guided tour booked in advance, although on the site it is said that it is open in July and August. I could take a superficial look because the guide was closing the front door at the end of a visit. I think we should give more precise information.

Although it is not exactly aware of its origins, it is undoubtedly one of the oldest buildings in the country. In the inner room, the wooden altar of the seventeenth century and the cycle of fifteenth-century frescoes with sacred scenes deserve attention. In what depicts the entrance of Jesus in Jerusalem, two lumberjacks at work are seen in the background, of which St. Volfango is a patron. Recommended destination, accessible in summer with guided tour.
