Piarist Church
A-3580 Horn - Austria

Map
 
 
Horn’s Piaristenkirche is an early Baroque building dating from around 1660, although the tower dates from the last century. In the west loft there is a board, from 1675, with a Latin inscription commemorating the dedication of the church by the Bishop of Passau. The marble high altar has an altar piece by Johann Martin Schmidt, nicknamed "Kremser Schmidt”, dating from 1777, which shows St. Antonius of Padua kneeling before Maria and baby Jesus. The building was part of the former Piaristenkonvent which in turn was formerly the home of the Puchheim family. As a national monument, it was refurbished in 2000.
