    Hi, the three "plague saints" are: Karl Borromaeus, Rosalia and Rochus. You can usually find them on all plague columns (trinity columns) everywhere in Austria. Best regards Silvia

    Hi Joe, I just checked and realized that I have forgotten one: St. Sebastian. There are four saints there. Three on the front side (Sebastian, Rochus and Rosalia) and on the back Karl Boromaeus. So on every plague column you will find some of these guys. Silvia
