The church of St. Areh (Henry)

The church of St. Areh (Henry) was set up on the order of Henrik Rogaški in the middle of the 13th century as a sign of reconciliation with the Benedictines. It is dedicated to the Emperor Henrik II, who ruled from 1002 to 1024 and whom in 1146 Pope Eugene III pronounced a saint. The greatest attraction is Henry 's tomb in the late Roman style situated in the middle of the church, in front of the presbytery and is a proof of the church’s old age. The originally Romanesque church got the present image in the second half of the 17th century, when it was enlarged and renovated.
