Public Monumental Statues

There are various protected monumental statues in the village. The oldest of them is the Baroque Holy Trinity column on Rába Square, erected in 1691. It was erected thanks to György Niczky, who played a key role in the rebuilding of Mihályi during the ravages of the Turks and then the Rákóczi War of Independence. He also had the Baroque statue of St John of Nepomuk erected in 1738 next to the bridge over the Small Rába. There are also two statues of Mary in the churchyard: the “Queen of Heaven” carved in 1700 and the extraordinarily beautiful “Immaculata” created in 1780.
Mary Magdalene and St Peter are depicted in relief on the bottom part of the stone cross erected in 1763 in the cemetery. There are also several monumental tombs, richly decorated with statues and reliefs, that were constructed at the beginning of the 1800s.
