Another fine representation of a plague pillar erected by those who survived. Have seen many on our trip across Slovakia, but this one is located in an especially nice town square.

Like Levoča this down seems deeply religious and steeped in history. This statue has a significant impact when you consider all that it has been through.

The Pillar (or stlp) is a piece of Slovak History that you can read about on pretty much every Slovak site. It's one of the main monuments in the square and is not easily missed.
