Gradiziol

Just before entering the historical centre of the town, there is the graveyard of the Church of St. Margaret. This area of the town is called Gradiziol, and developed in its suburban shape in the 14th and 15th centuries as a suburb. Gradiziol was accessed through a gate which was located at the beginning of the present-day street. The northern access to the suburb was protected by a row of tall, partly fortified houses, and the southern part was protected by a wall with a moat. The modern features of Gradiziol were built in the 18th century, with minor building interventions in the 19th century.
