The area
Address
Neighborhood: Margaret Island
For Budapest, this island between the banks of the Danube represents a green oasis, especially during summer when its emerald spaces are much enjoyed by both locals and tourists. The gardens here are very picturesque; the flowers in full bloom give the landscape a variety of hues; the fountains add an air of freshness, making walks peaceful, joyful and romantic. A leisurely stroll will uncover a variety of sites, even the ruins of a medieval Franciscan church and convent are still visible.

It is very interesting to see the ruins of the old monastery - they give you a good idea of the size of the complex. You can also read a bit of information, for example about Margit, after whom the island is named and where the grave is located. It is also good for taking photos if the light is good.

Camminando all'ombra degli alti alberi dell'Isola Margherita, polmone verde di Budapest a pochi passi dal centro, ci si imbatte nei resti del medioevale convento domenicano, in cui venne rinchiusa anche la regina Margherita (alla cui memoria, ovviamente, l'isola è dedicata) in segno di voto per la cacciata del nemico invasore, fatta dal padre in esilio.
Nulla di particolare ma, grazie a una passerella sopraelevata, si può facilmente distinguere il perimetro della chiesa e dei cortili che componevano, un tempo, l'antica costruzione religiosa.
Da vedere! @gargio76
