The alternate name of the baroque Calvary sculpture in the main square of Jászberény is "Pálinka Cross" (crucifix). When there's a market here the pálinka (strong alcoholic drink, distilled beverage like e.g. the brandy) was sold at the statue, so that's how this name has stuck to it. However, the sculpture didn't stand exactly on this site, it was placed here only in 1960.
