To the most valuable monuments of Bardejov belongs without disputate the gothic Church of Saint Giles (Egidius) which was promoted to Basilica Minor in 2001 by the Pope John Paul II. It was built in the second half of the 14th century and rebuilt in the 15th century.

The second most admired building is the gothic-renaissance Town Hall erected in 1505-1509.
It is an extraordinary work of art of greater than regional importance, a display of spiritual and artistic connections to the most progressive European thinking of its time.

The picture of the Bardejov area is completed by Bardejov Spa. The Bardejov mineral springs were recorded in documents of the Middle Ages, the earliest being from the King Bela IV in 1247. In 1809, the Austrian Princess Maria Luisa, the wife-to-be of Napoleon Bonaparte, took treatments here and in May of 1821, the Russian Czar Alexander I also stopped at the Spa.
A sharp increase in visting the Spa could be attributed in part to the fact that the Austrian Empress Elizabeth took treatments at the Spa in July 1895.
