Coming from the Hauptplatz, it takes just a few minutes to get to Mariahilferplatz, crossing the River Mur by way of a pedestrian bridge. There you will find the Minoriten Church with its adjoining monastery. Building of the church began in 1607 under the Italian master builders Giovanni Pietro de Pomis and Pietro Valnegre. This compound is among the most important baroque structures that Graz has to offer. The monastery is grouped around two quadrangles that are open to the public. The first quadrangle takes you to the exhibition rooms of the Diocese Museum. The former summer dining hall is now being used as a concert hall and can be accessed via the second quadrangle and is referred to as the "Minoritensaal."
