Long Description:
Holešov is a town in the Zlín Region, Czech Republic. The town is located on the western hillside of the Hostýn Hills - the westernmost part of the Carpathian Mountains.

Holešov is well-known for its mannerist château with the garden complex and the very unusual Jewish synagogue of the "Polish" type including ornate iron work and paintings on ceilings and walls using floral and animal motifs. This "old synagogue", also known as the "Shakh" or "Šach" Synagogue is preserved because services had been moved to the "new synagogue" before World War II. The new synagogue was destroyed by the Nazis, but the old synagogue escaped their attention.

Morový sloup se sochou Panny Marie na jeho vrcholu stojí na prostranství u farního kostela. Pochází ze zacátku 18. století, jeho autor však není znám. Byl postaven z vdecnosti za odvrácení moru.
Památník je vysoký 7 m a má tri základní cásti:
- trojúhelníkové zábradlí, sestavené z kušelu a se tremi svetci v jeho rozích
- podstavec, na nemž stojí vysoký sloup
- socha Panny Marie s andílky, umístené na vrcholu sloupu.
