Descripción del sitio
Melk Abbey was originally a palace, and it shows. Home to an active Benedictine community from the 11th century to the present day, the current Baroque ensemble was built in 1702-1736 by architect Jakob Prandtauer. Especially noteworthy is the church with magnificent frescos by Johann Michael Rottmayr and the library containing countless medieval manuscripts.
