Plague Pillar (Morový stĺp)

You can find Plaque Pillar, also known as Pillar of the Most Holy Trinity, in the the middle of the Square. The pillar was built by the order of Mikuláš Ilešházi in 1712 to commemorate the victims of a plaque that had afflicted the town in 1710. It is likely that the Pillar was erected by Vienna master-builders who at the time were carrying out reconstruction works of the Jesuit Church, today known as the Piarist Church. The church was destroyed by a giant fire that broke out in 1708.
