Olsztyn – St. James’s Monument

St. James is the patron saint of the city and this sculpture was originally designed to fit in a niche at the Upper Gate. For whatever reason, that didn’t happen, so instead it’s centrally located now in the city’s fish market area.

The statue is made out of sandstone, with the base made of a different type of the same rock. St James is seen with his pilgrim stick, with Olsztyn being located on a pilgrimage route.
