On the stone pillar, 1669 is inscribed with the name Matihias Spintler, and a deeper niche with a relief of Christ. The folktales claim that the memorial was supposed to be a monument. It is said to be the final resting place of the villagers killed by the plague. The villagers call it the 'White Cross'.
