  XI Ince Papa
by Airpunk

In a not overwhelmingly catholic country, it is almost a surprise to see a statue of a pope, yet a quite modern one. That?s because Pope Innocenzo XI played a big role in the expulsion of the Turks in 1686. The bronze statue was designed by Joszef Damko in 1936.

What was strange for me was the designation of popes: First the number, then the name and then the pope title.

Address: District I
Directions: On the top of Castle Hill (Varhegy). Funicular from Clark Adam ter (Buda bridgehead of the Chain Bridge), bus #16 from Deak F. ter, bus VAR from Moszkva ter. No cars allowed. Szentharomsag Square, close to Matthias Church.
