The church of Lavin with its restored paintings from 1490 to 1500, is one of the most famous and worth seeing art monuments of Graubünden. On the church tour you will get an insight into the history of the church and the village. 


The church was built around 1480. A short time later, the choir walls, the choir vault and the choir arched head wall, presumably by an Italian master, were painted on the full surface. The result is a cycle of images that, thanks to its quality and original symbol reproduction, can be counted among the most valuable works of art in Graubünden. In 1529, when Lavin was introduced into the Reformation, the paintings were completely coated with lime stains. From 1955 to 1956, on the occasion of a church renovation, the cycle of images was rediscovered, uncovered and restored. Remarkable is the rare depiction of Jesus Christ with the three interlocking faces as a symbol of the Trinity.
