Construction St. Bartholomew began after 1295 and was completed in early 16th century. On the main altar you can see the sculpture of the Madonna of Pilsen, 1390, one of the most valuable statues of the "beautiful style," of Czech madonnas (there is a replica on the top of the Plague Column of the 17th century.).The Šternberk chapel with a pendant bracket dates from the 1st half of the 16th century. In 1993, Pope John Paul II. established a bishopric in Pilsen and the church of St. Bartholomew became a cathedral. The cathedral tower with its height of 102.6 metres the highest church tower in Bohemia, is a popular viewing point.
