Bencés apátság, Somogyvár / Ruins of the Saint Benedictian Monastery, Somogyvár

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Szent László király 1091 és 1095 között - az általa Franciaországból behívott bencés szerzetesek számára - apátságot építtetett a somogyvári, úgynevezett Kupa-várhegyen. A templom és a monostor a kor egyik legnagyobb és legelegánsabb létesítménye volt, tiszta lombardiai román stílusban. Temploma három-hajós volt, három, félkörívvel záródó szentélye Keletre nézett, a nyugati homlokzaton két tornyot emeltek. A házat és a templomot hozzávetőlegesen 1533-ig használta a rend. Akkor azonban ide is elérkezett a török. Csapatai megostromolták, kifosztották és elpusztították az apátságot.

1983 óta nemzeti történelmi emlékhely.

King Ladislaus I supported the building of the Saint Benedictian Monastery of Somogyvár between 1091 and 1095. This monastery was built on the place called Kupahegy. This monastery and church was among the most elegant and beautiful ones in her age. It was built in Lombardi Roman style. The church had three naves, the three semicircular arches faced to the east. On the west side the frontage had two towers. The monastery and the church was in use until 1533. After the Ottoman turk invasion the monastery had been robbed and destroyed completely.

Since 1983 it is a national historical site.
