St. Petrus and Agnes Parish.
Was once main church for very large district, one of the oldest parishes in Pustertal. Hence cemetery sites for Olang's preists and judges from Altrasen. Baroque style renovations from 1709/12. Remains from Roman-Gothic predecessor, the great bell tower (1464-1477). Interior Baroque decorative art with triple arched bright nave, rectangulare chancel. Altar, pupit, choir chairs, holy water chalice and church door largely by Michael Rasner. Frames by Nikolaus Pedevilla from Bruneck. The high altar painting with its patron saints as advocates to Mary by Mathias Gasser. Ceiling displays martyrdom of the patron saints (Johann Matthias Pescoller, 1922). Gothic Pietà in front of the left side altar stems from before Baroque times, originating from the nearby Cemetery Chapel. Fresco with pregnant Virgin Mary on west facade (Hans from Bruneck, early 15th century).
