So you've walked over the Danube and had a look inside the Gellert Hotel at the stained glass panel on the staircase; then wandered through the great hall of the baths, and perhaps taken a dip. Now just over the road and on the side of Gellert Hill is something...but what is it. Go up and take a look. This is no ordinary church, but one built into the back of a cave by the Pauline order of monks. Pay your 500huf (400 if your a student or over 62), pick up your guided talk and let the atmosphere and history flow over you. This place is quite emotive. It is a gem but not publicised by the tourism board. Much more moving than the posh gilt and gold churches around Buda and Pest. Don't miss it - we may have been church and castled out by our travels but this place will stick in our memories.
There is wheelchair access to the main cave and church but one small area that cannot be accessed - however the commentary covers that bit very well.
