Spišské Podhradie is a town in Spiš in the Prešov Region of Slovakia. Its population is 3,826.
Spišské Podhradie is situated at the foot of the hill of Spiš Castle. It had a Zipser German (Carpathian German) settlement, with its own church and priest, in 1174. Just above, and adjacent to, the town is the ecclesiastical settlement of Spišská Kapitula (hence the town’s German name of Kirchdorf, meaning “church town”). The town contains a number of Renaissance merchants’ houses.
I was wandering around the town for a while. Really beautiful, the Spiš Castle looks far away.
I passed through the street and headed for the Spišská Kapitula (Canon or Cathedral).
