Fodor's Expert Review Mária-oszlop

Vienna Woods, Lake Neusiedler, and the Danube River Public Art
With its finely sculpted biblical reliefs, the column is a superb specimen of Baroque design. It was erected in 1745 to mark the former site of the medieval Church of Our Lady, which was destroyed by Sopron citizens in 1632 because they feared the Turks would use its steeple as a strategic firing tower.
