On the precipice
On a hill in front of the abyss to the Hinterrhein rises the church of St. Georg in Rhäzüns. St. George himself is said to have jumped over this abyss with his horse. The impressively simple room of the church shows an equally impressive painting, which was created in two phases in the 14th century - choir and eastern part of the hall by the Waltensburg master, the western part by the Rhäzüns master. The result is a kaleidoscope of medieval beliefs in a 360° panorama, which encourages contemplation and reflection. Orlando Fetz goes in and out of this church every day. He knows every stone and every picture in detail, as well as many stories and anecdotes, which he conveys in his engaging way. A rousing tour.
