1. Szent Mihály főangyal templom

Show sight on map

St. Michael's Church is the oldest parish church in Sopron. It is located along a very important traffic road, in the Szentmihálydomb district. In accordance with early medieval customs, it was built in a cemetery in the 13th century before the Tatar invasion, so it was placed outside the fortified city wall (Downtown). Originally built in the Romanesque style, the church was rebuilt in the 15th century in the Gothic style. After the fire in Sopron in 1728, it underwent a Baroque reconstruction, and it was Ferenc Storno who transformed the church in the neo-Gothic style, removing the baroque features. Today it is one of the most significant Gothic churches in Hungary.

The Franciscan monks first built their monastery in the center of the city, and then around 1280 they erected their church next to it from carved stone from Szentmargita, which is now considered one of the most outstanding works of Hungarian early Gothic architecture. Its nave vault and organ vault were built in the middle of the 15th century, and its furnishings are in the Baroque style.

The Pannonian Limes is that part of the old Roman fortified frontier known as the Danubian Limes that runs for approximately 420 km (260 mi) from the Roman camp of Klosterneuburg in the Vienna Basin in Austria to the castrum in Singidunum (Belgrade) in present-day Serbia. The garrisons of these camps protected the Pannonian provinces against attacks from the north from the time of Augustus (31 BC–14 AD) to the beginning of the 5th century. In places this section of the Roman limes also crossed the river into the territory of the barbarians (Barbaricum).
