Lipót Kollonich, Bishop of Győr, to commemorate Buda's recapture from the Turks, raised the monument in 1686. The four high baroque statues model Saint Stephen, Saint John the Baptist, Saint Anthony of Padua and Saint Leopold, the patron saint of Austria. The Blessed Virgin, Hungary's Guardian Lady is standing on a high column with spikes and angel-heads, with the Hungarian crown on her head and the infant Jesus on her right arm.
