Szentháromság tér

Holy Trinity Square

The gem of Veszprém Castle is the Holy Trinity Square, the home of ecclesiastical treasures as well as modern arts. This is the scene of open-air festivals and concerts. More Shorter

In the middle of the Square we can see the Holy Trinity Statue commissioned by Márton Padányi Bíró in 1750. The sculpture composition was designed by the sculptor Ferenc Schmidt.

St Michael’s Basilica stands in Szentháromság (Holy Trinity) Square, and is the first cathedral of Hungary founded by King Steven I. and Queen Gisela. The Archbishop’s Palace and the adjacent Gisella Chapel are magnificent buildings. The St George’s Chapel and the Beatified Gisela Diocese Collection keep historical and ecclesiastical treasures, well worth discovering during a pleasant stroll in the Castle.

The Salesianum Archbishopric’s Visitor Centre, which was opened in the autumn of 2011, enhances the attraction of the Castle.

In the Baroque buildings of the refurbished Castle, amongst its historic walls we can enjoy the masterpieces of contemporary Hungarian and international artists.

The Dubniczay Palace refurbished in 2006 provides a worthy home to the László Károly Collection and the Tegularium (Brick Collection).
