Light in the Dark: Entering Austria’s Painted Crypt

Founded in 1144, Austria’s Altenburg Abbey welcomes visitors with its aesthetic splendors. Not to be missed is its unusually beautiful crypt, a space adorned with frescoes painted by Paul Troger. But don’t let this light-strewn, cheerfully hued room fool you. Death is in the details.

This Great Big Story was made possible by Wells Fargo.
