The Basilica is the only Classicist building in Eger, and the second largest church in Hungary. It was built on the designs of József Hild from 1831 to 1836, and commissioned by archbishop Pyrker. The statues standing outside the cathedral are works of the Italian master: Marco Casagrande. On the front, there are the statues of the two Hungarian saint kings István and László, on the back there are the two main apostles: Peter and Paul. The peristlye in front of the main entrance is reminiscent of the Pantheon in Rome. If you are interested in organ concerts, please come at noon, there is music every day between 15. May – 15. October.
