Long Description:
The late Roman-early Gothic style church of the Holy Trinity was made famous by the paintings of János Aqulia, who painted the fresques of the church in 1377. The works of the painter has remained in five settlements only (Apart from Velemér, in Mártonhely and Bántormány, Slovenia, and in Fürstenfeld and Radkersburg, Austria) In 1378, János Aqulia of Radkersburg painted the wall of the church with scenes taken from the Bible and the lives of the Saints. There are priceless remnants of fresques on the single towered, tiny church.
