In the mournful year of 1594 the Turks destroyed most of the villages of the Little Hungarian Plain, slaughtered, persecuted or kidnapped their residents, and invaded the Castle of Győr. So-called crosses of Győr were erected throughout Europe in honour and memory of the victory of the Christian armies, and of the 1598 recapture of Győr which had a key role in the protection of Vienna. One of these is the Picture Column in Rábaszentmiklós. The square-shaped, slate-covered “three-story” tower decorated by a cross was renovated in the beginning of the 1990s. Then, new paintings of Zoltán Závory were placed in the top compartments of the picture column: pictures depicting the Trinity, Our Lady Victorious, and the Archangels Saint Michael and Saint Raphael.
