Archbishop's Palace

The Archbishop's Palace is one of the gems of Szentháromság tér. More Shorter

Due to the renovation of the Archbishop's Palace until summer 2018. The Exhibition of Conciliation and Coronation 1867 can be seen in the canonical building of the Beatified Gizella Diocese Collection in Tejfalussy. (Veszprém, Vár street 35)
 

This building - erected in the place of the former Queen's Palace and the former Acsádi Palace - was built on the basis of Jakab Fellner's design. The Baroque palace was completed in 1776 but at the end of the 19th century the building as well as the frescoes had to be restored. The 20th century did not spare the building either, consequently, conservation work was necessitated again. 

Permanent exhibition: Interieur exhibition, Memory of Queen Elisabeth and Queen Zita 
 
The last renovation was completed in 1996 - the year of the millennium. On the ornamental front of the building we can see the coat of arms of the Koller family - a reminder of the fact that the palace was built on the order of Bishop Ignác Koller. With its inner terrace and garden the building also offers an imposing view from the eastern side of the Castle, from the valley. Several valuable paintings and works of art can be found in the palace. Among these the frescoes prepared by Cymbal I. Johann are outstanding. The episcopal and prebendal archives and library also operate in this building. The last renovation was completed in 1996 - the year of the millennium.
