Romanesque heritage can be found all across Austria. However, it can be noticed that art and architecture derive from different movements from Southern and Western Europe. While Styria, Carinthia and Salzburg were mainly influenced by the Hirsau reformation, Cistercians shaped the Romanesque style in Lower and Upper Austria.

Carinthia is Austria's Romanesque heart: a region rich in cathedrals, castles, monasteries and fortresses surrounded by a scenic landscape and built in strategically important locations in order to preserve the inhabitants' deep religious faith.
