Welcome to Levoča
Levoča's Unesco-listed centre packs centuries of history between its high medieval walls. A Gothic church and fine town hall compete for attention in the main square, Majstra Pavla nám, which is hemmed by burgher mansions with gabled roofs. Presiding over it all is the celestial apparition of the Church of Mariánska Hora, on a hilltop 2km north of town. Levoča is also the birth town of Master Paul, a renowned medieval sculptor. Such spiritual and architectural riches have made Levoča enormously popular with visitors; take a day trip from Poprad, or stop en route to Spiš Castle, and see what all the fuss is about.
