Veža kostola Panny Márie (Church Tower of Virgin Mary)

Church Tower of Virgin Mary stands in the place where the walls of one of the oldest Liptov Christian temples have protected the information about the surrounding events for centuries. Their course, contexts and consequences significantly affected the life of the medieval Liptov region.

The results of the archaeological, historical and heritage research made in 1960s and 1970s across these places confirmed the continuity of the development of the settlement of Liptov from the Neolithic period to the 20th century. They also provided irrefutable arguments about the Slavic settlement of Liptov as early as in the period of the Great Moravian Empire. An uncovered terraced burial ground, serving its purpose since the 11th century, remembers the period of integration of Liptov into the Kingdom of Hungary. The church itself documents the development of the architectural and fine art of the ancient Liptov.
