We happen to have some more time in the city center than originally planned so visited this building even if we are not visiting churches so often. The building is nice from outside and its good to take a look of the funtains on the square in front of it. The internal view is much nicer than we’ve expected. Nice paintings on the ceiling, colorful glass painting windows and some wood sculptures around the pulpit. (Even if some review is mixing them this church is completely different from Eger’s Minorie church. Take care!)

You would not miss the Minorite Church when you visit the city centre of Eger. It was right on Dobo Square, almost a must on Eger Itineraries. From the outside, it looked neat and graceful but nothing spectacular like many of the colossal church structures in Europe. The interior of the church though small did display artfully done ceiling frescoes, nicely painted altars and skillfully crafted columns. Interesting to learn that this church was commissioned by the Franciscan Order and that the then Father Superior was reprimanded for building such a lavish church despite their order was founded in poverty. I missed the holy relic contained in a side altar, the ring finger of St. Hedwig, a gift from the Polish in 2002 as I only learnt about this after the visit.

After you've spent some time at Catholic churches in Italy, you might think there is nothing more to see. But take 20 minutes to view the ceilings of the Minorite Catholic Church on the Dobo square in Eger if you're in the city. As you can see from the photos, the ceilings are beautiful and the columns are painted to look like pink marble.

The Minorite Church, built by Franciscan Order, is located on Dobo Istvan square. In fact, I found that the square is better looking than the Church. However, if you find yourself on the square, take a look at the Minorite Church. Though built by the most humblest of the Christian orders, the magnificence of the Minorite Church will take your breath away. Take a look at the pews that were hand-carved row by row and depict different Biblical motifs. And do take a look at the altars: the High Altar and the lesser altars that are found on both sides of the church. There is also a relic that was placed in the church in 2002. It is the ring finger of St. Hedwig who became a nun after her husband, Henry I of Poland, died. As his wife, she also founded numerous religious houses. Another altar worth of visiting is dedicated to St. Florian, the patron to firefighters. This area of the church was burned during the fire of 1827, and in the painting, you will see St. Florian fighting those pesky flames. I recommend for anyone to visit this church but don't spend too much time here because other parts of Eger, like Eger Castle, beckon.
