National culture monument of Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Svatá Hora (meaning holy mountain) is an important Baroque complex and pilgrimage site. The complex underwent huge reconstructions in 2015, which also affected the courtyard in front of the church (Svatohorské Pilgrimage Square).
Part of the complex is also 78-metres deep chapel Mary’s spring, pillar on the square with gilded statuette of Virgin Mary, Way of the Cross, 450-metres long covered stairway connecting the complex with Příbram centre, Kalvárie hill with statue by M. Huber, Exerciční dům (place for spiritual exercise), Svatá Hora pilgrimage museum and place for stalls, pilgrimage souvenirs shops, refreshments. There is 400 years old Saint Vaclav’s oak located in the area. During the year there are many events organised, mostly religious events (most well-known is probably the Coronation), but there are some cultural, social and even sports events organised (e.g. Svatohorská šalmaj or Firefighter stairs run). Svatá Hora belongs to Saint James's European pilgrimage route.
