The Baroque Plague Column would be built in 1713 as a thank you for not being hit by the plague epidemic. The author of this unique sculpture was probably one of the artists from the circle of sculptor Brokoff. At the top of the column with a Corinthian head is a statue of the patroness of the town of Our Lady of Lomnica. The balustrade is set in the corners with statues of saints - st. John of Nepomuk, st. Šebestiána, sv. St. Lawrence and St. Rozálie.

Na vrcholu sloupu s korintskou hlavicí je umístena socha patronky mesta Panny Marie Lomnické. Balustráda je v rozích osazená sochami svetcu - sv. Jana Nepomuckého, sv. Šebestiána, sv. Vavrince a sv. Rozálie.
