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 outside this entrance, the religious Order of Saint Paul (the 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.
