The statue of Virgin Mary is situated in Piața Libertății, in front of the old town hall. It was built in the memory of those who died in the plague epidemic that surmounted the town. The bas-reliefs at the basis of the statue reflect scenes from the epidemic period. The statue was sculpted in 1740 in Vienna and it was placed in the Continental hotel's area. In 1952 it was moved in Piața Libertății. On the initiative of the Bănățean Kraut Association from Germany the statue was restored in 1994 by Ioan Oprescu.
