Located on Szechenyi Square in the Old Town of Gyor, the Benedictine church of St. Ignatius of Loyola was built from 1634-1641 by the Jesuits. The two square towers topped with onion domes were added in the 18th century. The Benedictine order took over the church in 1802. The magnificent ceiling paintings are by Paul Troger a famous Viennese Baroque artist

This is well worth fighting your way through the 3 doors from the square to step inside what it lacks in stain glass it makes up for in an effervescence of guilding and colourful stone work.

The beautiful Baroque church is located on the main square of Gyor. It was founded by the Jesuits in the seventeenth century and became a Benedictine church in the early nineteenth century. The simple white facade is flanked by two square columns topped with green domes.

Definitely worth a visit.

Was invited to a Baptism in this Church and the interior is exceptional. The Church looks onto a plaza where there are weekly performances and always full of people and activities

This is one of the most fascinating church in the whole world. The architecture is in the baroque style, so you have rich ornamnets and wall paintings all over the place. Must see.
