Podolínec is an ancient town in the region of Spiš, which has a compact ground plan, typical for the Middle Ages, squeezed into a well-preserved municipal fortification.
In the middle of the square is the church of the Virgin Mary's Ascension of the late 13th century. In 1659, a nice Renaissance belfry was built beside the church with a rare bell of 1392.
The square is skirted by a row of Renaissance burgher houses.
At the northern suburb of the town is the monumental building of the Piarist church and monastery.
Today it is an inseparable part of the town's beautiful silhouette.
