    St. Mary's Column

    St. Mary's Column you will probably notice some time during your visit to Trier.
    We saw the Column as we drove into Trier, couldn't miss it really, as it towers over the city from the highest point of the sandstone cliffs on the edge of the River Mosel.
    The crowned statue of St. Mary, was erected through donation's made by the citizens of Trier.
    The 40 metre high statue was dedicated in 1866.
