All these features were already appreciated long ago. In Lavant there is even evidence that indicates a Neolithic settlement and also the Celts saw the potential this municipality and its surroundings provide at an early stage already. Due to the given surroundings and the quiet location, the Lavanter Kirchbichl already provided favourable conditions for a settlement with cultic as well as agricultural use. The latter is still a high priority in Lavant, for example, Osttirol’s only asparagus farmer lives in the valley floor community.
Lavant is the home of two sacral buildings that are absolutely worth seeing. On the top of the Lavanter Kirchbichl, which, by the way, can be "climbed" on a nice walk and which turns into a romantic toboggan run in winter, you will find the church mentioned in the beginning, dedicated to St. Paul. At the gates of the church you can enjoy a fantastic view over the foothills of the Lienz valley. Only a few meters away is the church of St. Ulrich, which is certainly not short of baroque pomp. From outside, the baroque richness of this almost modest appearing church can hardly be guessed. Apart from a cosy hotel with beautiful suites and numerous small guesthouses and private holiday apartments welcome guests on a high level in the village all year.
