White Picture

The small building near the cemetery gate is known as the “White Picture”. There are painted reliefs in the recesses on the four sides of the square, walled, white-washed, red-roofed tower with a double cross. These works, created in 1859, have images of the Virgin Mary and the Crucifixion of Jesus as well as two other important saints for the inhabitants of Dunaszentpál. The village was famous for its livestock breeding, so St Wendel, the patron saint of shepherds, and St Florian, the protector of those dwelling in flammable, thatched houses, are also depicted on the picture column.
