Spišská Kapitula, an ancient religious town, is also called Slovak “Vatican”. It is characterized by the cathedral with two Romanesque towers. Since 1776 it has been Spiš bishopric residence. From here dignitaries organized religious life not only in Spiš but in the whole Slovakia. The most important building of the Spišská Kapitula is a beautiful late Romanesque St. Martin´s Cathedral. From all the sites Romanesque travertine sculpture Biely lev (Leo Albus), the altar in Zápoľský Chapel and beautiful Renaissance epitaphs of Imrich Štefan Zápoľský deserve attention.
