Ideal for a day trip, this UNESCO world heritage site is located 20 kilometres away from Gyor and dates back to thousand years. Originally a fortress, this structure is the witness to the glorious history of Hungary and has a prominent place where important events took place. National movements, peace treaties, Turkish invasion, great fires and number of restorations make it an illustrated picture book of European art and history.
Displaying a huge era from Romanesque to classicism, this fortress of Hungarian Benedictines still has few reminisces of the old church in the crypt. Flaunting a priceless catalogue of library dating back to 1090, there are over 250,000 volumes in the library including the charter of the cloister from Stephen I dated 1001. Also, the earliest record of written Hungarian language is a matter of pride!

This is an impressive building above the small village with a nice view - if the weather is fine. The Abbey tour was rather short, because of the limited attractions, but it was OK. Unfortunately the audio guide device changed the language sometimes, but a local guide helped us. We liked the Basilica's moderate style. It's worth a visit. Don't miss the wine selection in the visitor's shop.
Hihetetlenül váratlan élmény volt ide látogatni. Egy ismerősöm ajánlotta, de biztosan vissza szeretnék menni. Tiszta, rendben van tartva és a kiszolgálás is barátságos. Mindenképpen vigyetek haza a helyben termelt levendula készítményekből. A varázskenőcs csodákat ér!
Location and view is very nice, the library is beautiful but it is expensive considering that you cannot visit too many thing inside the building complex. The arboretum is a good place for a nice walk and to discover the herbs. There is a separate trip for brewery for a separate price.
The best historical site in the city. Used a tour app to walk us through the history at our own pace and it was the way to go. The library was the highlight. Go early to reduce wait times for the church.
Don’t pass by and make a 3 hours deviation. It’s worth seeing. At least once. With a help of of a precise audio guide.
