Traces of the Romans can be seen during a guided tour of the Basilica.

St. Laurence Basilica stands on the north-east corner of a Roman civil settlement. The foundations of a Roman church lie under the floor of the nave as well as those of the original early Christian building.

The church that you see was built by stages. The oldest part of the structure is the tower that dates back to the 13th century and was erected using Roman building material. The noticeable chancel was built around 1330, while the nave probably was built in the 14th century.

St. Laurence Basilica houses Upper Austria´s two largest oil paintings from the years 1711 and 1726.
