St. Jakobus Irmelshausen Church

Besides the five-sided castle Irmelshausen, the late Gothic church, with its numerous and beautiful Bibra gravestones from the 16th and 17th centuries, is worth visiting. Among the graves at the church is that of Hans von Bibra (1547 1581) who is the common ancestor of all living Bibras.
