  • Pod Kalváriou 281, Bardejov
Description

In the immediate vicinity of the town of Bardejov rises a relatively high hill, dominated by Bardejov Calvary. The central building is a nice two-tower church built in the neo-Romanesque style. The church is supported on the west side by a high wall, in which there is an entrance to the relatively large underground chapel of St. Mary Magdalene.

In front of the church there is a relatively large cemetery, where the important inhabitants of the town have been buried since 1896. 13 chapels symbolizing 14 stops of the Stations of the Cross are part of the Calvary area. The seventh and eighth stops are located in the double chapel. Individual chapels have their own benefactors and there are tombs of their dead.

At present, Calvary is absorbed by the growing greenery, and so the former dominance and center of spiritual life does not protrude much beyond. From the place below Calvary, a nice view of the city Bardejov lies open. To this day, pilgrimages are held here three times a year.
