Bijacovce (Hungarian: Szepesmindszent; German Biazowitz/Betendorf) is a village and municipality in Levoča District in the Prešov Region of central-eastern Slovakia. The village is along the famous Gothic Route and the church dates from the 13th century. The church is gothic with a rotunda to match it. There is also a manor house from the 18th century in Bijacovce. The manor house was built between 1780-1785 by the Csaky family. The last renovation of the manor house was in 1955.
