ONE OF THE MOST BEUATIFUL BAROQUE CHURCHES IN EUROPE
In 1517 there was a rebellion in a Franciscan ordination in North-Italy. Seven Franciscan monks established their own minority under the name of the Minorites.
The first Minorite church was built on the bank of Eger stream. As the stream used to be abounding in water, its floods seriously damaged the small church and a new one was needed to be built. (1758-1773)
The Father Superior of the monks had been castigated for building such an imposing church which was in fact in contrast to their attitude being poor.
As we go along marvelling the imposing outside and inside of the church, the altar, the frescos, and the carving of the furniture, there are no doubts that the church was built by an excellent architect.
The church can be found in the large Dobó István square, which emphasizes it's unique masterpiece.
