Cave Chapel - Sziklakapolna, Budapest: 30 reviews and 79 photos
Unfortunately, when I took these photos, I couldn`t go inside the chapel, because it was closed. But later I will take some photos also of the internals, wich are very interesting.
Ok, today, on the 29 of march 2007 I put in the photos I had promised:) See next tip
The "Pálos" order is the only religious order, founded by hungarians. Hundreds of years ago, they created this very caracteristic chapel. This order was several times dismissed but every time it was reinstituted. The chapel got it`s present day aspect in 1926, and in 1934 also a chloster was built in the same place. During the communism, the chapel was walled up, but in 1989 it was reopened to the fedels and for the visitors. A visit here is recomended, especially if you climb the hill from the Gellért hotel.
