Built in 1728 to plans made by the architect Lamanch Jazsef Karoly and with the support of the Empress Maria Theresa, this glorious early Baroque church has a superb interior with its main altar carved out of wood and covered with gold leaf, six side altars decorated with sculptures and paintings, statues of Saints Peter and Paul, Saint Anne and Saint Anthony of Padua, and numerous carpets. The stained glass windows made in Budapest in 1891-1894 are of particular beauty.
