The Church of Sveta Troitsa, on the south side of pl. Vazrazhdane, got the go-ahead after Bansko merchants paid off a local official to declare that a miraculous icon had been discovered on the site (which qualified it as "holy ground" suitable for a Christian place of worship). A wall was then raised to conceal the townsfolk's' enlargement of the church beyond the size set by Ottoman clerks - for which the mayor of Bansko was jailed for five years. The resulting structure is one of the largest in Bulgaria outside Sofia.
