Villach, a charming tiny Austrian village with Roman roots, is located just across the border from Austria. There are several historical sites in Villach, and its old town centre, known as Altstadt, is one of the most charming in southern Austria.
The Main Square, sometimes referred to as Hauptplatz, which runs through the centre of the historic district of Villach, is an excellent site to start your exploration. At the north end of Main Square, there is a bridge that crosses the Drau, and the Parish Church is located at the south end.
Similar to other small towns of its size, Villach boasts a 1739 Trinity Column that stands in the centre of the plaza and honours the town’s escape from the plague.
