WMF at the Banská Štiavnica Calvary Complex

The Calvary Complex in central Slovakia was constructed by the Jesuits between 1744 and 1751. The complex is a remarkably intact ensemble of Baroque structures all connected with a purpose of higher calling…the Calvary, consisting of 22 buildings (19 small chapels and 3 churches) are linked by switch-back trails that climb a hill (the former” neck” of the volcano) and collectively present the 14 stations “Ways of the Cross”, scenes of the last days of the life of Jesus Christ.
