In front of the funeral chapel at the cemetery of Großharras there is a statue of St. Alexius.
Alexius of Edessa, according to the oldest legend, a Syriac Vita from the 5th century, was the son of the Roman senator Euphemius and Aglaia. After his marriage, he left his parents and his wedded wife and fled to Edessa, where he lived piously as a hermit in poverty and soon inherited high veneration. Alexius is one of the most venerated saints, his veneration reached its peak in the late Middle Ages and Baroque. He is considered the patron saint of pilgrims, beggars, vagabonds and the sick, and is also the city patron of Innsbruck, Kalavryta in Greece and the towns of Sant’Alessio in Italy.
