Human ErrorNo steps at the church - Kutna Hora, CZ

in Human Error

At the Church of Saint James in Kutna Hora, you will find this strange entrance to the church. I assume there was a wooden frame/stairs in the past... but no longer. Which makes exiting through this door quite a risk.

Well...there's a faux pas for ya. The building honoree's name was not only misspelled, but crudely rubbed out on this cast metal plaque. The marker mounted to Xavier Hall botched "Mother Frances Xavier Warde" as "Franch", then rubbed out the "h".
