It is officially called the Church of Our Lady but is named after the main donor King Matthias, he was married here. It was built in the 13th -14th century in Gothic style. In 1541 when the Turks occupied Buda it was turned into a moque and the frescoes were whitewashed. After the retaking of Buda the church went to the jesuits and they made Baroque changes. It became a parish church in 1773. It was restored in the second half of the 19th century and rebuilt in Neo-Gothic style.
