Info text

The Baroque church of St. Mikuláš actually divides the Lesser Town Square in two parts, the upper and the lower part. In the past, the square was used as a marketplace, the same as with all the other squares in Prague. For example in the middle ages, there used to be gallows or a pillory on the square. The upper part of the square used to be called Italian Place, because

of foreign sellers offering their products and merchandise there. A Baroque plague pillar dedicated to the Holy Trinity has been preserved until today and it is one of the most beautiful plague pillars in Prague. It was carved by a stonemason following Giovanni Battista Alliprandi´s design in 1713, as an act of thanksgiving for the eradication of the plague in Prague.
