In the Old Town, is this old Church of Mary Immaculate or Nun's Church.

Built in 1358, it is quite a plain Church that has some frescoes that are fading away. One is of the cruxifiction.
The statue of "Mary" is located in a little alcove in the stone wall, and then I had to climb a stair case to reach the Church.
In 1782, Klarisa's nunnery which operated under the church complex was dissolved. Interestingly, it was connected to the Castle on top of the Hill
