Levo a is a town in the Spi region of eastern Slovakia with a population of 14,600. The town has a historic center with a well preserved town wall, a Renaissance church with the highest wooden altar in Europe, carved by Master Paul of Levo a, and many other Renaissance buildings. On 28 June 2009, Levo a was added by UNESCO to its World Heritage List. Levo a is located in the historical region of Spi, which was inhabited as early as the Stone Age. In the 11th century, this region was conquered and, subsequently, became part of the Kingdom of Hungary and remained such until 1918. After the Mongol invasions of 1241/1242, the area was also settled by Germans. The oldest written reference to the city of Levo a dates back to 1249.
