Dating from the medieval period, St. Egidius Basilica showcases early Gothic architecture and serves as one of Poprad's main historical attractions. Originally built during the 13th century, the church today stands over a square of the same name in the center of town. Visit the church and explore its interior, notable for the double-aisled construction native to the region. Don't miss the paintings within depicting the Virgin Mary and St. Egidius himself, both of which date to the Baroque period.
