To your right you can see one of the oldest visible parts of our church: one of three entrances preserved from the Romanesque period 1 around 1220.

The special feature of this entrance is the completely preserved tympanon 2, a relief of the upper outside arch, which depicts a cross on a pillar amidst a grapevine.

Beyond and outsiede this entrance, the religious Order of Saint Paul (or Barnabites), who ministered in Vienna in Saint Michael at the time constructed the Great Saint Michael House 3 around 1660.

Behind the grille on the ceiling of this Saint Jude Thaddeus Chapel 4 are the fresco remains of the four evangelists, painted in the late Romanesque period (around 1300).

The Austrian Federal Historical Monuments Authority restored a small section of these ceiling frescoes beginning in 2003.
