The Temple of Our Lady, sanctified in honor of the Virgin Mary, patroness of Hungary, better known by most people as Matthias Church, is the most famous Catholic Church in Budapest and is located in the heart of the Castle district.

It was built during the reign of Béla IV, the first king who ordered to build a palace on the top of the mountain, next to a village.

It was built during the reign of Béla IV, the first king who ordered to build a palace on the top of the mountain, next to a village. The ecclesiastical tradition maintains the position that in the present place of this church the first Hungarian king San Esteban I constructed a religious building, around 1015. All the kings after Béla IV made some modification, adding a tower, a door and extending the building (among them Luis I of Hungary and Segismundo of Hungary, who made gothic modifications, and Matthias I of Hungary, that transformed the Church with the renaissance style). In fact, his present name of “Matthias Church” was received by the Hungarian king Matthias Corvino, who by 1470 restored and reformed the church.
After 1541, when the city of Buda was invaded by the armies of the Ottoman Turks, the church of Our Lady was transformed into a mosque, only to recover its situation almost 150 years later when the Germanic armies reoccupied the kingdom and expelled the Turks. From that moment on it continued to have great importance for Christians of the city.

It is one of the most beautiful temples of eclectic architecture in Hungary and is in the vicinity of the statue of the Holy Trinity, built to commemorate the epidemic of 1709.

It acquired its present form during the restoration of the end the XIX century. Thanks to its excellent acoustics, organ and classical music concerts are held inside. Its fresco paintings and stained glass were made by the greatest artists of the time. (Bertalan Székely, Károly Lotz).
In 1867 the Hungarian Archbishop of Estrigonia Janos Simor crowned Francis Joseph I of Austria as Hungarian king in the Church of Our Lady. Decades later, after the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the death of Francis Joseph I, after the end of World War I, the Hungarians chose as king another member of the House of Habsburg-Lotaringia, being crowned as Carlos IV of Hungary on December 30th, 1916 by the Archbishop of Estrigonia János Csernoch in the Church of Matthias.

For example, on this occasion we were told that the enlargements made by different Hungarian monarchs meant that this building does not currently have a unique architectural style.
On the facade, dominates the tower of Matías bell, of 5 floors. The Gothic rosette on the second floor had been covered in the Baroque, but reappeared during the major remodeling of this church, between 1874 and 1896, under the direction of Frigyes Schulek, who succeeded in rebuilding the original form of the stones, from a few fragments.
Los tours virtuales son una oportunidad para seguir admirando los lugares de interés que visitamos y de aprender sobre los sucesos importantes de los mismos. Por ejemplo, en ésta ocasión nos comentaron que las ampliaciones realizadas por distintos monarcas húngaros hicieron que este edificio no tenga, actualmente, un estilo arquitectónico único.
En la fachada, domina la torre de la campana de Matías, de 5 pisos. La roseta gótica del segundo piso había sido cubierta en el Barroco, pero reapareció durante la mayor remodelación que sufrió esta iglesia, entre 1874 y 1896, bajo la dirección de Frigyes Schulek, quien logró reconstruir la forma original de las piedras, a partir de unos pocos fragmentos.
