Show sight on map

The Catholic parish and former monastery church of Sankt Alto and Sankt Birgitta in Altomünster, a market town in the district of Dachau in Bavaria, was built in the second half of the 18th century on the site of a Romanesque predecessor building from the 13th century. The church is dedicated to St. Alto, a hermit who, according to legend, founded a monastery in Altomünster around 760, and St. Bridget of Sweden, the founder of the Order of the Saviour. The church is one of the last great religious buildings of the Rococo, the ceiling frescoes by Joseph Mages (1728–1769) and the stucco decoration by Jakob Rauch are already at the transition to classicism. Most of the altarpieces were also executed by Joseph Mages, the altars and the carved figures are mostly by Johann Baptist Straub (1704–1784). The parish has been cared for many years by priests of the Teutonic Order.
