      The main altar-painting

Favorite thing: The main altar represents Mary and Elisabeth`s meeting, and it was created by József Falconer a swiss painter. The sculptures were made by Frigyes Held.
The pulpit (1747-48) was brought here in 1774 from the Clarissa church in the Buda castle, transformed to a theatre by Joseph the 2nd, while the Saint Anna altar was trasported from the Matthias church 5 years later, in 1779. The side altars were created thanks to the donation of the "újlakian" citisens.
They represent St. Joseph, St. Florian, Saint Antony and Virgin Mary.
The organ wich I couldn`t photograph this time was built by the Rieger manufactory in 1905 and it is the last part of the church still to put right.
