    The church in Enveitg is really the one and only tourist attraction. It is constructed out of the same grey fieldstones that were used for the majority of the other structures in its immediate vicinity. Unfortunately, the church is not generally open to the public for visits – probably because there is one priest who services the entire district and all of its small villages. Still, it is very much possible to enjoy the 12th century Romanesque architecture from the outside too. There is a small bell tower with bells that do occasionally ring (I know, I was rather shaken when one unexpectedly began to toll) and a small statue devoted to the Virgin Mary on the back part of the church. There is also a cute little garden, as well as a small memorial to those from Enveitg who died in the First World War. It is rather incredible to think that such a small town could have produced enough young men to actually have victims of the trenches.
