St. Trinity column (plaque)

Monumental column of St. Trinity is one of the most important baroque sights in Slovakia

It was built in 1765-72 as the initiative of the town in front of the parish church of Blessed Virgin Mary, where it replaced the older column from 1710. The original plaque column stands in front of the municipal office in Horná Ves. The magistrate commissioned with this demanding job two sculptor's studios - studio of Kremnica's burgher D.I. Staneti and Austrian sculptor M. Vogerle of Bruck. After the death of both masters the column was finished by A. Mayer, I. Götz and J. Jenitzer. The artistic value of this piece of art is amplified by its complex idea taking the protection against plaque into consideration together with the town's specifics (miners' and town patrons - St. Barbara, St. Catherine, St. Clement) with anti-reformation drive (St. Anthony of Padua, St. Joseph, St. Francis Xavier).
