Five-aisled church

Located at the foot of the Matra Mountains, in a village in Heves county, the Catholic burial chapel was built in the 11th century for the Aba clan. The chapel was a masterpiece of the early Hungarian architecture. It was the combination of Western and Eastern Christian architectural elements that gave the burial chapel its special form. The Romanesque church was a five-aisled, central-plan building. A tower stood at the center of the building.

Interior of the church

Typical of Eastern Christianity, the church was a central-plan building. The chapel was 20 m × 20 m (65.62 ft x 65.62 ft). The apse’s semi-circular design lent a special atmosphere to the interior of the five-aisled church. The Romanesque building had walls with Gothic windows.

The crypt

Inside the temple, a stairway led to the crypt, which was built according to the western European model. The crypt’s middle section, as well as its wall paintings, were discovered in the second half of the 19th century by Imre Henszlmann. Later, several people worked on the excavations and the restoration of the crypt. One of them was Ferenc Erdei. The central nave, which also contained the burial chamber, was 20 meters (65.62 feet) long. Not only the frescoes, but also rudimentary carvings and massive bundle columns render it unique.
