Wieskirche - Wies Church

The Wieskirche, near Pfaffenwinkel, is one of the most perfect works of art in the Bavarian Rococo style. Called the "Pilgrimage Church of the Scourged Saviour", it is unusually secluded and peaceful for such a beautiful church. In spite of the lightness and grace typical of Rococo style, the Wies Church has in fact a deep meditative quality coming from the important theological themes which are treated there. The spiritual center of the church is the Scourged Saviour, a beautiful sculpture of Jesus Christ, and the main ceiling fresco depicts the Resurrection.
