Historic buildings on the main square of Jaśliska

Market Square in Jaśliska

The main square of Jaśliska was marked out in the 14th century during the town's foundation by Casimir the Great, and again at the end of the 15th century after the town was destroyed in the invasion by Matthias Corvinus' forces. From the 15th century until the 1980s, a town hall was situated in the centre of the square, and its place is now occupied by the current administrative building. The most interesting feature of the market is the historical wooden buildings along the route to the parish church. Some of these are former Jewish houses, which were centres of trade and services before World War II. These houses have preserved arcades typical of Galician market squares in the 19th century. Notably, the church is situated outside the square, a common feature in medieval towns.
