Day 2 : Josefstadt

Just in front of the Maria Treu Church, in the middle of the Jodok-Fink Platz, you see a beautiful baroque pillar.

On top of the pillar there is a Maria statue, and the lower part is richly decorated with angels and saints (see pictures).

And like many pillars in Vienna, this pillar is also dedicated to the remembrance of the Plague Epidemic from 1713.
