Matthias Church (Matyas Templon)

The Matthias Church is one of the Medieval gems of the Buda Castle District. Built in the second half of the 13th century in the opulent Gothic style, it was the venue of coronations and royal weddings. During the 150 years of the Turkish occupation, it was transformed into the main mosque of the city. The interior was completely transformed, including the whitewashing of the wall frescoes. In the 19th Century the church was restored to something resembling its original appearance, however its splendours were destroyed by the Second World War. Subsequent renovations took around 20 years, and further restoration was carried out between 2006 and 2013 Besides its stunning interior, the Matthias Church also impresses with its uniquely tiled roof, and gargoyle-laden spire. Visitors can also enjoy high-quality classical concerts, performed by local and visiting musicians.
