Sopron Things to Do: 43 reviews and 93 photos
Originally a Fransciscan monastery stood on this spot and it's church, in the 18th century,eventually passed to the Benedictines.This is a fine example of Hungarian Gothic architecture, apparently one of the finest in all of Hungary. It's called the 'Goat Church' because of some fanciful legend concerning a goatherd and a pot of gold (oops, maybe I'm getting this a little confused with leperachauns but I'm Irish so please excuse me ). It's a huge church and as you can see in the photo the exterior is really impressive. I looked forward eagerly to exploring the interior but when I got inside everything was covered with scaffolding and the decorative features swathed with protective drapes.
