Mariánský chrám (Church of the Virgin)
Mariánský chrám (Church of the Virgin) Review
Just off the main square, this church is the highlight of the recently renovated Bakaláře Square. You can't miss the 240-foot tower, which is open for a climb. Construction began in the late 1200s, about the time the bridge was built. The lone surviving tower was completed in 1487. On the inside, look for the Madonna of Písek, a 14th-century Gothic altar painting. On a middle pillar is a rare series of early-Gothic wall paintings dating from the end of the 13th century. Ask about a tower visit at the Pisek Tourist Information Center, or make a reservation through the parish website.
