A must see when you visit Naturns. Opening hours are very limited, but worth pencilling in for a Thursday or Sunday. There is a lady that provides explanations on the frescos and history of the church.

We made a special point of visiting Naturno in order to see the church and museum - we arrived by train from Merano and walked up, which is about 1.5 miles. We started at the museum, which was fascinating and included models of the church at various points in its history, excellent videos (and I usually don't much like reenactions), and a wealth of information about the architecture and archeology (there are human remains on display). Unfortunately we were so absorbed in the exhibits that we were there until the museum closed for lunch - at which time the church is ALSO closed for lunch. After having learned all about the church, it was a heartbreaker not to get to see the frescoes we had come to see. We were trying to visit many other sites the same day and unfortunately couldn't wait it out and couldn't return another day. I've included the photos I took of the posted hours so hopefully this won't happen to anyone else!…

This tiny church gives a glimpse into history over 1,300 years back. Very exciting. I visited the church only and not the museum and the brief visit was definitely worth it. Recommended.

Even if you only have a chance to look into the church, you should take in the ancient paintings. They are remarkable. There is a handout available in English that discusses the history of the church and the paintings.

This small church is a must detour from the main road. It has amazing old paintings and an impressive history well documented since the middle Ages. There is also a small museum which brings to live the different stages in its history including the times of the pest (although it really was typhus).…
