Mr Monkey had a look at the Rotunda of St. Martin. This was built around 1100, looted in 1420 during the Hussite Wars, burned in 1523, used as a gunpowder store in the Thirty Years War, damaged by a Prussian bombardment in 1757 and restored in 1880. If you look at it more carefully than Mr Monkey did you should find Prussian cannonballs embedded in the walls. Nearby, Mr Monkey inspected a plague pillar, or wayside shrine, erected before 1685, but with early 20th century mosaics.
