Description

Located in the center of the Castle District in Budapest, Iglesia De Matías was constructed in the Gothic style of the latter 14th century, and then extensively renovated in the late 1800’s. In medieval times, it was the second largest church in town, and one of the most grandiose in the Hungarian Kingdom.

It was originally named after King Matthias, who ordered the reconstruction of one of its unique towers. It was also where the Matthias held his two weddings. This church was a popular place to kings to be crowned, one of which was King Charles IV in the early 20th century. Iglesia De Matías is also home to the Ecclesiastical Art Museum of Budapest, which starts in the medieval crypt and ends in St. Stephen’s Basilica. This historical art exhibit features several items including ancient vestiges, royal crown replicas, wood carvings, and royal jewels.

Another fun fact about Iglesia De Matías is that it has superb acoustics, making it a great place to hold organ concerts, and classical music performances. If you get a chance, it is highly recommended to check it out. Its rich history and eclectic architecture make the church a genuine gem of Budapest.
