Minorita Templom (a.k.a. Minorite Church or Saint Antony of Padua Church) is on Dobó István Square (Eger's main square). The Franciscan Order of monks built a church in central Eger in the 13th century. Out of humility they refer to their order as lesser or “minor” in Latin, hence the name Minorite. The church was converted into a Mosque during the Turkish occupation (1596-1687). When the Turks were expelled, the General of the Imperial forces gave the church back to the Franciscan order. The church was rebuilt (architect Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer) and dedicated to Saint Antony of Padua in 1771. It is a fine examples of a Baroque church, both inside and out. The main entrance is flanked by pairs of Corinthian columns, and the curved pediment is inscribed, "For God nothing is enough". The inside is gilded and flamboyantly decorated with columns, paintings, statues and an intricately carved main alter. Ceiling frescoes depict scenes from the life of Saint Anthony. The main alter picture illustrates Saint Anthony's vision of the Virgin Mary floating on clouds, holding baby Jesus in her arms. On the eastern side of the church is Saint Hedvig Secondary Girl Hostel, and on the western side the Town Hall. The church is open daily with no entry fee, although a donation of 300 HUF is suggested. There are daily masses.

...like all Catholic churches in Hungary, it seems. This one has an incredibly ornate altar and intricately decorated images all over.

It is a beautiful church what is still active. We were lucky and we could hear the part of the pray on Sunday. Very beautiful but not a spacious place, and we could not go around properly bc of the ceremony, which wasn't a problem for us being someone who likes to see the traditions are still alive.

Located in Dobó Square the church really does have beautiful frescos. No entrance fee and only a handful of people walking around on the Sunday morning we visited. There are limited signs in English and I suspect a tour would have added to our experience. Recommended.
