Inner City Franciscan Church
Inner City Franciscan Church: Baroque Franciscan church in the heart of the city
The Pesti Franciscan Church in the city centre is located in Ferenciek Square, a few steps from Váci Street.
In this place the first church was built around 1240. When the Turks invaded the city in 1526, the church was set on fire. Later, the church was turned into a mosque.
The Franciscan order returned to the building in 1696. The church in its present form was built between 1727-1743.
The inside of the church is in Baroque style. A very impressive main altar from 1741, decorated with sculptures, is the most valuable object. In 1895 Károly Lotz painted beautiful frescoes, and in 1926 paintings by Viktor Tardos were added. The beautiful tower dates from 1861.
