  Coat of arms
Slovenská Lupča (11 km)

The Slovenská Ľupča castle was built in Gothic style in the middle of the 13th century. Ján Jiskra and later Matej Korvín acquired the castle in the 15th century. At present 700 years old tree stands guard by the castle and attracts many domestic and foreign tourists. In Slovenská Ľupča and its environs there are many historical items evidencing the past famous history: a Gothic church built in 1611-1620 with interesting vaults; town-hall from 1659, the column of the Virgin Mary from the middle of the 18th century in the area of the Gothic church; a church with a precious oil-painting of Jesus Christ by J. B. Klemens.   >   Surroundings   >   Slovenská Ľupča
