The church was built in the 15th century on the ruins of an ancient church built here in the 13th century. King Charles Rover arrived here from Anjou after his official coronation at Skaschfuhrer and was crowned in another religious ceremony.
The Matthias Church was built in the 13th century, but what we see today is mostly reconstruction from the 19th century. Then the church was built in the neo-Gothic style we see today. In the magnificent church space, there are wonderful stained-glass windows. As is customary in such churches, the magnificent 19th-century stained-glass windows depict events from the lives of Christian saints.
If you look to the right of the apse, you will see steps leading to the church museum. Here are religious artifacts, Christian icons and a hint of the treasures of the past by the kings of Hungary.
There is also a reconstruction of a medieval crypt, that holds remains of ancient graves.
